On the cusp of turning fifteen, Greta can’t bear to leave her childhood; it contains all the things that give her comfort in this incomprehensible new world. She floats in a bubble of loserdom with her only friend Elliott, until her parents throw her a surprise birthday party and she’s flung into a parallel place: a world that’s wonderfully weird, a little bit violent and thoroughly ludicrous – only there can she find herself.
Age Suitability: 15+

New school nerves, embarrassing parents, the mean girls, the cool guy, first love... Just a regular teen movie. Apart from the dreamy forest sequences and one cool disco scene.Sarah Ahern, Fantastic Flix Programmer
