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.

Rarely rises above the generic, though its atmosphere of coddled young people indulging themselves in opulent surroundings is palpably authentic.

Ultimately not even the gifted Mara can keep the film from feeling like a gauzy portrait of privilege.

The performances aren't bad, but the film quickly collapses into an incoherent, tonally inconsistent muddle with no narrative momentum.

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.

There are some dedicated performances, but this unfocused drama adds nothing new to the girls' boarding school film curriculum.

The result isn't bad, it just lacks momentum and a strong reason for existing.

[A] tale of teenage rivalry, forbidden romance and other musty coming-of-age concerns.
