This was a movie about a young college student thrust into a difficult situation. After her father and step-mother’s death, she’s put into a position where she must take care of a sister she barely knows.

Now, let’s be completely honest here. It’s not the most unique storyline ever utilized in a movie. If you’re really looking for further honesty, the entire movie pretty much followed a very easy template. The beginning of the movie suggested it would and the ending proved it. It actually took a little while for me to even get into it at all. For about a half hour I was convinced this movie would have me falling asleep in no time.

As the story went on, though, I found myself amused by the sarcastic sense of humor the main character, Olivia, portrayed and the relatively realistic interaction between her and her little sister, Celia.

My final thought? It followed a recipe, but the end product was still somewhat fulfilling. It just barely made average for me, but it definitely could have been worse.

Overall Opinion – 3/5
