QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A talented high school senior must contend with various issues while holding down various jobs in hopes of making her dream of attending Carnegie Mellon a reality.
PLOT:

Amber Appleton (AULI'I CRAVALHO) is a high school senior in Portland, Oregon who, due to them being evicted, sleeps at night on the school bus her widowed mom, Becky (JUSTINA MACHADO), drives during the day. Amber's living situation is a secret to everyone, including her close friends Ty (RHENZY FELIZ), siblings Chad (GERALD ISAAC WATERS) and Jordan (TAYLOR RICHARDSON), and Ricky (ANTHONY JACQUES) whose single mom, Donna (JUDY REYES), is something of a second mom to Amber.

With the help of her performing arts teacher Mr. Franks (FRED ARMISEN), Amber hopes to attend Carnegie Mellon and holds down a number of jobs to make money to pursue that dream. That includes working in a seniors home where her upbeat demeanor is a near-constant faux irritant to one of the residents, Joan (CAROL BURNETT), who lives there.

Amber's situation becomes more complicated when her mom decides to start seeing a former, abusive boyfriend and starts drinking again, with neither development sitting well with the teen. A later tragedy then threatens to derail everything the teen has dreamed of, and she must learn to let others help her get through her tough situation.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
