Everyone knows that one of the hardest things in middle school can be fitting in, so this movie was the greatest option for a Saturday night family movie. My mom convinced me to buy the last copy of the DVD at the store a couple weeks ago, and it was awesome! The film explores the world of cliques, middle school, and trying to fit in
The movie introduces Massie, a popular girl who is in an exclusive, popular group at an upper class middle school. Massie’s life seems perfect, but it turns upside down when her dad’s friends move into their guesthouse. Then, the film introduces Claire, a girl who is new to the middle school that Massie and her friends go to. Claire tries to fit in, but Massie and her friends exclude her, insult her, and do the types of things that would be considered bullying. Claire decides to get back at Massie, so she does something that, in the end, teaches her a lesson or two about being herself.
What I liked:
– The songs: Find My Place is such an awesome song!
– Claire: She is pretty much my fave character in the whole movie.
-The Morals: Be yourself, treat others as you would like to be treated, I have to say, these are awesome morals that everyone will remember.
What I didn’t like:
– The language: The movie had some awesome morals in it, but one thing I wasn’t too overly thrilled about was the language in the movie. It would NOT be suitable for younger kids due to this.
-One of the parts: I didn’t like how the ‘Clique” was overly mean to Claire.
