Great messages and female protagonist

I watched this movie with my 13 year old nephew and a group of his male and female friends. After, we spoke about having the strength to work towards a goal and what this might mean in terms of being different or "out of sync" with everyone else at school. Plus it’s wonderful to see a film that provides a strong female protagonist – avoids over sexualizing her – and shows clearly that pursuing her dreams are every bit as important to her as her new romance.
