      The extraordinary thing about this movie-and it is extraordinary-is how real the kids feel.

      There are some moments where the group of working-class girls seem genuine and honest. At other times, the film is a bit dull and takes on the character of a middle-class morality tale, almost a cinematic finger-wagging.
