Senior year movie review

Best year of her life.
Reviewed by 
Sydney Terison 
The movie was about a young lady named Sydney played by Lea Michelle (Glee) getting through her last year of high school and all the struggles that come with being eight teen. It is a quirky comedy with a lot of ups and downs and it is rated PG. There were some twists and turns and some unforeseen surprises. You also follow Sydney as she looked for jobs and the trials she faces along the way.  You see life from Sydney's point of view and what it is like to be from a divorced family. She also has a unique family that some would find strange... She lives with her father played by Matthew Modine (Family weekend), mother played by Melissa McCarthy (bridesmaids) and step father played by  Christian Bale (bat man) and they all get along great.
             We see Sydney go through a lot of planning for college and the stresses that go along with writing scholarship essays. Seeing her trying to find people she is close too, so that they can write recommendations for the scholarships she is applying to. Follow her as she gets her college acceptance letter and as she chooses her major. Along with choosing her major she has to finding out what courses she needs to take to achieve that goal. She wants to become an Art therapist and help children with disabilities. Let them be learning or physical disabilities she just wants them to feel that they can express themselves.
The movie is a family movie that is heavily centered around Sydney's walk with Christ and how she is growing in faith. She volunteers at an elementary school and at her churches children's ministry. She is involved with a young life club that she had to step out of her comfort zone to get involved with. By being this introverted girl she overcomes being non social and participating in more social activities.
             She is involved in Yearbook and she soon realizes how much work it is to complete the yearbook. She some how ends up to be the only girl in her CAD class, we find out what she thinks of it. One would think that being the only girl in a room of boys would be a dream come true for any girl. She gets a lot of great advice from her personal finance class for planning her future. Watch as she over comes her personal struggles like getting over her fears of failure and her insecurities.
               Follow her as she plans on going to prom and why she is determined to not go alone to her senior prom. So she plans on getting a group of her friends together so they can all go together to diner and the dance. One of her friends gets a limo for them all to go in. Find out how important Family and faith is to her and what it means to her to have her family close to her. All in all it was a great movie, I give it 3.5 stars. I'm not going to spoil the ending for you, so go see it.
