About the Movie
Josie Alibrandi has a lot to deal with right now. She's 17, got the dreaded H.S.C. in front of her and the boy of her dreams seems completely out of reach. Then there's that other problem. She's a wog. Sure it's where Josie comes from but it's not where she feels she belongs. In fact, Josie doesn't know where she belongs. With her Nonna in one ear talking about the old country and the stuck-up girls at her school telling her she's an outsider, it's no wonder. This year, however, everything is going to change. Josie will let loose, face her fears, uncover secrets - even discover the true identity of her father. It's going to be a year when Josie finally out where she belongs.
This film is so beautiful. You find yourself relating to every single character in one way or another. The story is believeable and both tragic and joyous at the same time.
One of the best
Still all these years later one of my favourite movies. Do yourself a favor and watch it. they dont make them like this anymore.
