  1. Lila, played by Vahina Giocante, who resembles a sexed-up young Emma Thompson, is a teasing, 16-year-old blond baby doll with a gleam of perception beyond her years.
  2. Startlingly erotic and surprisingly moving.
  3. Superbly acted, especially by Giocante as the teasing 16-year-old instigator.
  4. 67
    It doesn't take an awareness of the ethnic and cultural differences between the miniskirted siren and the shy Arab youth to see that she might be more than he can handle.
  5. Reviewed by: Jessica Reaves

    Far less interesting than its premise, primarily because we never know what anyone is really thinking.
  6. Reviewed by: Derek Elley

    Easy on the eye but light on originality.
  7. A misguided tale of sentimental education.
