Have you seen this movie?
Don’t laugh. Don’t judge.
This movie has been on Netflix for awhile and I always passed it. The title just seemed, ugh, dumb?
Well, for some reason, I decided to watch it.
I LOVED IT
This is not an academy award winning film, but for someone who writes for teens, I think it’s dead on.
Here’s the synopsis.
Starting a new year of high school, Lola (Miley Cyrus), (or “Lol,” as her friends call her), works to find the right balance between family, school, friends and romance. Broken-hearted by her ex, Lol’s world is soon turned upside down when she is surprised to find her best friend, Kyle (Douglas Booth), a musician in an up and coming rock band, could possibly be the love of her life. In her quest towards independence, self-identity and young adulthood, Lol discovers that while Facebook “status” is easy to change; true relationships are worth the effort.
This is a perfect example of a bad cover and a bad title. They don’t fit the story.
Here’s what I loved about the movie, Lola is a typical teen with typical boy problems. Her relationship with her mother is strained, but very authentic. I loved the interactions with each other. Demi Moore plays her mother and she doesn’t suck!
A few other things I loved.
Douglas Booth aka Kyle
