Wild Child is a fantastic film starring Emma Roberts as Poppy Moore as she is sent to boarding school in England.
After giving away her dad's girlfriends belongings she has pushed her father too far and he sends her to Abbey Mount School in the UK. Coming from California this is a big shock to her system.
When she arrives at boarding school she is greeted by her headmistress, Mrs Kingsely (Natasha Richardson), her enemy, Harriet and Kate who is assigned to be her 'big sister'.
On arrival at school she continues to make trouble but soon discovers it is not tolerated.
As she struggles to fit in at the school she lies to her roommates but she soon realises they are her friends and want to help her. The only way she can get out of the school is expulsion but will she go through with it?
The headmistresses son is a love interest of Poppy but will she get her own way when he doesn't date students.
The film is 98 minutes long and by Universal Pictures. I paid £10 for it when it was first released but it can be bought for a few pounds now, this is good because mine has been watched so many times it is getting scratched and I may need to buy a new one. This is well worth the money.
Some bonus features are the making of wild child, head girl tour and school memories (I found this quite interesting).
It is rated a twelve.
My favorite part of the film is the end but I won't spoil it. This is a film I have watched over and over again and never get bored of.
