Story


As Fernanda (Rooney Mara) enters her senior year at Tanner Hall - a sheltered boarding school in New England - she's faced with unexpected changes in her group of friends when a childhood acquaintance, the charismatic yet manipulative trouble - maker Victoria (Georgia King), appears. Shy and studious, Fernanda is usually the voice of reason among her friends - adventurous and sexy Kate (Brie Larsen) and tomboy Lucasta (Amy Ferguson)-but when she begins a complicated friendship with Gio (Tom Everett Scott), an older family friend, she decides it's finally time to take some risks. Jealous of Fernanda's exciting relationship, Victoria begins to sabotage Fernanda's plans and plots to publicly humiliate her. Meanwhile, Lucasta struggles with her newfound feelings towards another classmate, and mischievous Kate is too preoccupied with making her teachers nervous to pay much attention to her actual classes. However, as each of the girls flirt with adulthood, they realize they still need each other to help get through their first grown-up decisions-and the consequences they bring.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..everything feels dainty to the point of stale..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]
“..the film is a beautifully-made slog; the confusing ins and outs of the teenage-adult transition are explored quite thoroughly (if not taken to the utmost extremes), but what's missing from its story is any sense of joy that doesn't feel ill-gotten..”
by Christopher Null [Filmcritic.com]
“..it unfolds in ways too predictable to be dramatically satisfying, at least has the virtue of feeling like something that's allowed to run its course without being forced into near abstraction..”
by Andrew Schenker [Slant Magazine]
