The latest from Gurinder Chadha, the director of ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ and ‘Bride & Prejudice’ is a coming-of-age drama adapted from the first two novels of British author Louise Rennison, whose ‘Confessions of Georgia Nicholson’ series has been a hit with teenage girls.

Its interest is 14-year-old Georgia (played by Georgia Groome, unrecognisable from her turn as the runaway in ‘London to Brighton’), who isn’t the prettiest schoolgirl on her pastel-painted terraced street in Eastbourne, but has at her disposal optimism, friends and a clever line in put-downs. The arrival of modest, ‘fit’ brothers Robbie and Tom (who play in a band called the Stiff Dylans) and occasional, dispassionate ‘snogging’ lessons offer her a welcome dose of escapism. Nevertheless, she still feels charged with keeping together her architect father (Alan Davies), who’s planning to move to New Zealand, and mother (Karen Taylor), who’s taken to preening herself in front of a handsome builder.

Chadha’s skill is catching the nervous mood and buoyant pleasure of those early boy-girl dalliances – the best scenes are those of Georgia and Robbie (a nicely contained Aaron Johnson) talking on the seafront. She’s at ease, too, dealing with the girls’ silly obsessions – lists, grading, outward appearance and social comparisons – and the more serious issues of the functioning of friendships and the forging of self-identity. Sweet and often funny.

Excellent film, very entertainment but unrealistic. I'm 13 and watched this. The Robbie and Tom situation hardly ever happen and I felt quite upset knowing this would never happen. Despite this, I could watch this over and over.

The film is overly girly it could have been made better i think i didnt understood why jas in the movie was telling georgias personal stuff [like boys r rubberband thing] 2 other people this must have depresed her naturally so how come was the character rude in the movie u better watch selena gomez starrer another cinderella story 2008 its far better with better script which is quit realistic not like cinderrella story and very funny villains n characters great teenage movie with style n emotions n comedy

Kathalina

I loved it!!!!!! This is such a cute movie and it's my new fav! The guy is sooooooo hot and the acting is pretty decent. The kissing, or "snogging" is super hot and sweet. The movie had such a good happy ending and I love happy endings!

Absolutely LOVED the movie! It was brilliant! I laughed very, very hard in almost all of it. The actors were amazing, too, very good. And, of course, like every girl in the world at the moment, I am in love with Aaron Johnson! Fantastic film.
