Light, romantic fun, if you are a fan of this stuff, rent it soon
Brooke (Kaley Cuoco) is a fashion student at a prestigious school in Manhattan. For a former foster child, this is quite a feat. However, she is not truly the "star" of her class. That honor belongs to gorgeous Candace (Megan Fox), who dazzles the student body with her designs. Suddenly, an older gentleman enters Brooke's life. His name is George (Dominic Chianese) and he tells Brooke some startling information. It seems his close friend of his was rich but, when his son and daughter-in-law died, he was too sad to care for a little girl so he gave his granddaughter to the authorities. That was Brooke! But, now that he has died, he has left everything to her. At first quite upset at her late relative for abandoning her, Brooke soon allows George to show her the "family business", a sort of mob that wants to go straight. George also gives Brooke the confidence to excel as a design student. But, could a cute new student be watching Brooke for the FBI? And, are there more secrets afoot? This is a light, romantic film that will please insatiable fans of the genre. The cast, mostly unknowns, is quite good and the script, costumes, sets, camera shots, and direction are all worthy, for it was mostly likely a low budget undertaking. No, it won't be a crime if you sit down to watch this one. Rather, smiles will consistently appear on the contented faces of its viewers.
