“There would not even the possibility of nuclear war, or any war, if millions of men had been prepared to stand up against authority, as I did, and refuse to join the army – refuse to take orders. It’s mindless obedience that’s the killer. I’ve broken the rules. All the rules. Because someone has to say no.” – Roland

Brief Synopsis – The friendship of two teenage girls is tested when they decide to become free spirits in England during the 1960’s.
My Take on it – This is definitely not my kind of movie and I truly have nothing good to say about it.
I found the story to move along extremely slowly and didn’t find any of the characters interesting enough to care what would happen to them.
The story itself is an attempt at a coming of age tale trying to show how strong a friendship can be no matter what can come between the best of friends.
I think that ultimately this movie fails in that quest.
Bottom Line – Not an enjoyable film IMHO. Was very difficult to sit through and it didn’t seem to move along at all.
Rating – Razzie Worthy
