Great flick! Rooney Mara is awesome!!

I found this film to be quite enjoyable! Rooney Mara shines on screen - such a wonderful actress. I usually find girls' boarding-school type of movies fun yet interesting to watch. Each character has their own unique problems to deal with; including teen rebelling, a suicidal student, an affair, trying to fit in, stressful mother-daughter relationship...etc, a lot of which most people can relate to. Lots of sexual references but nothing over the top - although one quick nude flash of a student trying to hide from a teacher in the shower room. I found some parts quite funny and just all around entertaining coming-of-age film! Looking to buy this one on DVD.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much sex
