  1. To earnest for its own good. Sincere and heartfelt, it's the kind of family film that might be at home on cable.

However she is stuck in a provincial North Island town of New Zealand, trying to deal with typical "coming-of-age" challenges such as parents who don't understand, a cruel brother, unfaithful friends, a handsome teacher and dozens of unanswered letters she has sent to the Queen.
