I'm biased but it was good

I read the book first so I had to auto remove a star because I'm biased towards books. However, I feel like this film did a really decent job of portraying the book. No film does it exactly the way you want but this one came very close. I'd recommend watching it first before the book though.

This story should have out sold Lord Of The Rings. This movie allowed you to go inside of the trials and tribulation of a teen-ager coming into womanhood as well as being of different ethnic background. I applaud the production and writer of this story. This movie opened up what Parents, America, and young teen-agers need to understand. I wish these hollywood movie bosses all get together and put this out at all the theatres and give it the boost like they do the big name movies that come out. I think if they showed the interest in this like they should have more people would have loved to have been educated by this.

The title doesn't do it justice...

If you've ever been a girl and had unreasonable, self-centered parents (either from this country or another), see this movie and prove to yourself that you are not the crazy one. This movie has it all and says it painfully. Budding young girls are objects for the men around them. To use, abuse and ejaculate into. The young heroine is a tremendous beauty. Her father is a hypocrite and her monster (I meant mother!) is very self-involved. All the men want her. She's been taught to be a very obedient girl. It's painful to watch, and you cheer for her, but you know that someday she will end up in the madhouse, a victim of too many disciplinarians spoiling the disciple. I beg you to watch it and learn. Ignore the title, I know they tried hard. It doesn't work (for me at least). It is so much more than a movie about race or hair accessories. It's about sex! Who has it, who wants it and what rules they'll break to get it. One of the best movies I have seen. It beats American Beauty as far as I am concerned...
