Editorial Reviews

Based on the bestselling Private book series by Kate Brian, this 100-minute film (compiled from the 20-episode web series) is about Reed, a transfer student from a small town who's struggling to fit in with an established clique of privileged girls at an exclusive boarding school. Just weeks into her first semester, Reed finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery that involves her new boyfriend and her fellow housemates. The characters in this drama are full of teen attitude and a healthy sense of entitlement, and, while they're not very appealing to most adults, they seem to fascinate preteen and young teen girls, as does the film's strong feel of exclusivity and almost constant aura of danger and mystery. The film was produced by Bob Levy (Gossip Girls, The Clique, Vampire Diaries) and written for the screen by Veronica Becker and Sarah Kucserka. Kelsey Sanders, Brant Daugherty, Chord Overstreet, Natalie Floyd, Tristin Mays, and Samantha Cope provide the acting talent. While teens aren't likely to learn many life lessons from this film, they'll find it entertaining. Extras include a reality-TV-style casting segment featuring three actresses trying out for the part of Kiran, interview footage with the cast and screenwriters, and a CD-ROM sneak peek of the first chapter of the Private prequel novel Book of Spells. (Ages 12 to 15) --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars I Like It February 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Despite the fact that this movie/ web episodes have received negative ratings, I actually like it just the way it is. I also like the acting. I understand that the movie is very different from the books but that's just fine with me.

I liked the movie but the characters were not what I imagined and I wish it would have followed the story line a little better, but what bothers me most is that at the end of the movie does anyone else understand the picture?!?

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy March 22, 2011
The show is horrible. It is basically a big advert. for Neutrogena and the acting is terrible. If you a fan of the books, you will be very disappointed with the show.
