Cassandra (Tamsin Egerton ) has left to go to NYC for a piano audition and to lose her virginity to her Skype friend. Things don't go as planned. Kerays (Shanika Warren-Markland) is from Brazil and prefers girls. Joanne (Emma Roberts) is working the night shift at Ted's grocery mart where much of the action happens. Toss in the fact they cross path with some unlikely jewel thieves and you got the bare bones outline.
The film appears to be designed for older teen girls as it combines the more hip grindhouse style, but makes teen girls the heroines of the story. The film blends aspects of comedy, crime drama, action, and thriller but unfortunately does each very sparingly. It is a story in which you can lose interest.
Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex, brief nudity.
This movie is definitely for teens because the writing involving sexual stuff is really immature in a way that makes adults blush. It's also extremely hard to follow because the story often switches into several different directions at the blink of an eye, while making it difficult for the viewer to keep up. This is due to the camera jerking around like mad *all the time*. Good luck keeping up with the events on screen and trying to make sense of anything! What I can make out strikes me as a bunch of teenage drama involving young ladies however, but it *does* begin to make sense when the focus is on each of the ladies lives.
Ophelia Lovibond is depressed and suicidal with her own family matters (her depressed dad blames her for their mother leaving I think, and on one occasion shows violent outbursts). She's the one in possession of the diamonds and frequently finds herself roaming around town to be with her friends, but she always appears during the wrong times while conflicts are occurring with the other girls, so we end up feeling sorry for her that nobody's giving her any much-needed attention (and trust me the way Ophelia looks and acts with her pale face and quiet demeanor, she *needs* urgent attention!)
Tamsin Egerton who is absolutely gorgeous (quite possibly the hottest girl I've ever seen in fact- yes I'd go THAT far! Just look at her amazing elegant hairstyle, beautiful blonde hair, perfect eyes and stunning face!).Read more ›

What's it about?
This exciting crime thriller tracks 4 best friends over 3 days they will never forget. Their lives change forever when a chance encounter with some deadly thieves sends their worlds on a collision course with the players in a major diamond heist.
What did I think?
It was "Pulp Fiction" meets "Mean Girls" in this edgy British thriller. You go on a 3 day journey with 4 girls, but you follow one girl at a time. I liked that it would tell one girl's story, then rewind and tell another's. All 4 stories tie together in pieces during the movie, then as a whole at the end. It made for a nice movie where you got the whole story and not just one point of view. I enjoyed it and I hope you will too.

I thought it was going to be kind of "hoakey" at first but was pleasantly surprised!Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
the movie was hard to follow. If you left the room, you would have to restart or back it up to see what the story line was.Published on February 27, 2013 by Rodney Orr
