Four years after
Bride & Prejudice
and some serious flirting with the Hollywood studios, Gurinder Chadha directs this very British coming-of-age yarn. Adapted from the first two books in Louise Rennison's
Confessions of Georgia Nicolson
series, the film stars Georgia Groome (
London to Brighton
) as the hormonal heroine. She's the stuffed olive at a fancy dress party where all the other girls are dolled up like Playboy bunnies, and it's this self-effacing humour that is so endearing. Of course, Georgia is far too clever for her own good and has much to learn about love and loyalty. The material may seem familiar, but Chadha has a light touch and never patronises her audience. Instead of gross-out gags, she exploits the dry humour that comes from Georgia's quiet exasperation with her embarrassing parents (played by Alan Davies and Karen Taylor), uncomfortable undies, and sloppy snogs. And Aaron Johnson is surprisingly soulful as the wannabe rock star heart-throb.
A 14-year-old girl struggles to cope with the torments of growing up, fitting in and finding a boyfriend. Tired of being a social outcast, she plans to throw the perfect birthday party to win the respect of her peers. Comedy drama based on Louise Rennison's series of novels, starring Georgia Groome, Alan Davies, Karen Taylor and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
