Absolutely beautiful film.
I had no idea what this film was about when I started it, and had never heard of any of the lead actors.
However the simple and sometimes silly story sucks you in with such simplicity and natural beauty that I remained transfixed while it played out.
Morris wears the film like a trusted old suit and carries it effortlessly throughout, despite her lack of experience.
It was a much needed surprise boost of simplicity and naivety and beauty that it cheered me up no end.
I will probably never watch it again, it's not that type of film, but I wish I could watch it for the first time many times more.
No sex, no violence and no intrigue: just a simple story about teenage curiosity leading to a family secret and then a clear identity.
This is the first time in a very, very long time I've given an 8 in a review, but it was well worth it.
