Very cute film.
Amazon Customer
She is not too intense, allows her daughter some space, tries to provide a different perspective when necessary (without being pushy), and has a sense of humor.

The film "Dear Lemon Lima" is an unexpected delight that repurposes almost every teen movie cliche imaginable into a sparkling and charming comedy that seems surprisingly fresh. I had no preconceived notions about the film and maybe that's why it caught me unaware--but this coming-of-age story is both offbeat and relatable. Many films that opt to go down the quirky route do so at the risk of losing genuine emotional resonance, but writer/director Suzi Yoonessi subtly balances the whimsy with a very solid heart. This one has it all. It is the journey of growing up, an embrace of first love, a tale of misfits coming together, and a triumph against adversity. Absolutely nothing new is offered in the way of plotting, but by delivering the narrative in a unique environment with an understated (and deadpan) tone--"Dear Lemon Lima" really does set itself apart from hundreds of other films covering similar territory. And it does so in a sweet and family friendly way.

The film focuses on an unlikely heroine played by Savanah Wiltfong. At the beginning, she is infatuated by an older boy (played with arrogant pomposity by a terrific Shayne Topp). However, Wiltfong is a bit of an awkward outsider and the couple are on distinctly different trajectories within the school's hierarchy. Falling in with a likable band of misfits, Wiltfong starts to understand what is really important in this life. When she takes an unlikely position of leadership in a major school competition, it's time for the misfits to band together as a team--one with integrity and heart! All sounds pretty standard, huh? Part of the film's uniqueness is its setting. Taking place in Alaska, the culture of the state and its native inhabitants plays a significant role in the narrative.

Starts out a little weird. OK, a lot weird, the story builds nicely. Like true life some really nice things happen for the young star in her sad little life. Yet also as is the case in real life, you have to live it and that's where things get a little messy. A really good film.

This is a great movie for the 12+ crowd! It is about friendship, self-confidence, teamwork and learning that growing up can suck but it can also be fun. The movie is filmed in wide shots that are colorful and lush. The actors are authentic kids and teens who come in all shapes, sizes and walks of life. The story unfolds creating a sense of living in a world of sherbert colours where pastels can cure any harshness. Dear Lemon Lima is a fun, sweet movie that you will remember long after seeing it.

One of my kids recommended this movie to me. I was hesitant because, even as a teen, I never really cared for the "teen" movie genre. This is not an exciting movie. It is an incredibly thoughtful one. It keeps you thinking long after you watched it and you'll find that you have little to complain about if you enjoy this type of movie. Even though quite thoughtful, this movie deftly incorporates humor. You will laugh a lot, you will cry, and in some instances you will be laughing and crying. Keep the kleenex's handy.

I found the movie to be well-written and the acting superb. It reflects a confusing stage of growth with such sensitive intelligence and yet without being morose. Yes, there are some flat characters that are a bit cliche, but they are used appropriately in moving the story line along and they are not portrayed in a completely vacuous or a completely reprehensible light. Even the flat characters get an intelligent and gentle touch and some are given the chance to grow. I love the way the writers developed the characters without imposing too much of an adult sensibility. Somehow they captured that hard to define space between childhood and adulthood.

We enjoyed the mother's character. She is not too intense, allows her daughter some space, tries to provide a different perspective when necessary (without being pushy), and has a sense of humor. I guess I can relate to her because my parents approached parenting the same way. They didn't live my life for me, but there was no doubt they were there for me.

Vanessa's (main character) father is never seen in the movie, but his mother keeps an open line of communication through letters. Though she is never seen, the grandmother actually plays a pivotal role in Vanessa's growth process.
