Bad girl at boarding school

2008-11-14 00:00

ONLY one new film opens locally this weekend — Wild Child at CineCentre — while Lakeview Terrace comes back on circuit at Nu Metro. However, there is hope on the horizon with the new James Bond outing, Quantum of Solace, coming to both Ster Kinekor and CineCentre on Wednesday next week.

Wild Child is directed by Nick Moore and is a coming-of-age tale starring Emma Roberts, Natasha Richardson, Aidan Quinn, Shirley Henderson and Alex Pettyfer. The story concerns a Malibu brat who is too much for her widowed father to handle, so he packs her off to an English boarding school. It is something of a culture shock, and she reckons the only way out is to get expelled, but then the headmistress has a sexy son, so maybe there might be a reason to stay.
