PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A rebellious Malibu princess is shipped off to a strict English boarding school by her father.
This was Natasha Richardson's final film before her death on March 18, 2009.
Charlotte, Jane: We think so, too.
In the school dance scene, Harriet quotes the movie Pride & Prejudice (2005), saying "You may only call me Mrs Darcy when you are completely, perfectly, incandescently happy." This quote, however, is from a final additional scene of the film which was included only with the US release to satisfy the US audience with "extra schmaltz". As she is from the UK, Harriet wouldn't have seen this version of the film, and so wouldn't have known this quote.
The end credits begin with scrapbook cutouts of Poppy and her new life at Abbey Mount, later showing a clip of her and her new friends at Poppy's beach house in Malibu.
