Scout Tafoya's rating of the film The Moth Diaries

This film, more than any other movie I've ever seen, captures the feeling of a modern Young Adult novel; as such it's more than a little tepid, flirts with dark imagery, and completely ordinary. I commend Harron for making a film for/about teenage girls, but I do wish she brought some of her biting, nearly balletic sense of pop satire.
