Four teenage girls come of age while attending an all-girl boarding school.
" [A] tale of teenage rivalry, forbidden romance and other musty coming-of-age concerns. "
" The performances aren't bad, but the film quickly collapses into an incoherent, tonally inconsistent muddle with no narrative momentum. "
" Ultimately not even the gifted Mara can keep the film from feeling like a gauzy portrait of privilege. "
" Codirectors Francesca Gregorini and Tatiana von Furstenberg work up some believable, easygoing rapport between the young actresses, but since the story line is hackneyed, it's rapport in a vacuum. "
" Allows room for a lot of thinking about other things - its cast most notably, since watching their struggle to move beyond the mundane is painful. "
" Rarely rises above the generic, though its atmosphere of coddled young people indulging themselves in opulent surroundings is palpably authentic. "
" Nothing but a tone-deaf, cliche-ridden mediocrity at best. "
" There are some dedicated performances, but this unfocused drama adds nothing new to the girls' boarding school film curriculum. "
