Quite simply: You have a 17 year old Brooklyn Teenager struggling to find herself (in a world around her full of labels).
The Journey she takes is compelling and the performances are stellar, true and heartfelt (Kim Wayans performance is a huge surprise). It is very rare that such a complex and moving film can so deeply affect you, yet maintain such an up close and personal relationship (between all the characters) and that's why (along with the performances) this Film works!
Without any extra hyperbole, this is , quite simply, one of the Best Films of the last 10 years!
