When I was a little girl, my daddy would always say that the summer I turned pretty would be the best summer of my life. And he wasn’t wrong. This is the story about a sixteen year-old girl and her two best friends. It’s about love for art and love for each other and love for ourselves, but most of all this is a love story about one perfect summer in our changes.
What is the plot of the story ?
Belly Conklin is a pretty girl with a not-so-pretty past. She has grown up with an abusive father who made her feel like she was worthless and ugly. After one particularly horrible fight with her father, Belly goes to live with her wealthy grandmother, Aurora, in the small town of Belle Haven on the Northern California Coast. There she meets Jeremiah, who is just as passionate about drawing as she is. They fall in love with each other while they draw and chat all night long by their lonesome without technically being boyfriend and girlfriend. It’s the summer that changes everything for both of them.
Who is in the cast ? What role did each character portray ?
The cast include Lola Tung , Jackie Chung , Christopher Briney , Kaiya , Elan , Katey Wu and more. Lola Tung portrayed the role of Belly Conklin. She has starred in more than 30 television series including The Walking Dead, South of Hell, and current hit ABC show Hemmorhage. Jackie Chung plays the role of her best friend Jacy. She has appeared in several television series such as House of Cards, Tenure and current hit CW show The 100. Christopher Briney portrays the role of Jeremiah Andretti. He is a film director and writer known for directing the film “the Summer I Turned Pretty”, created by Lola Tung herself. Kaiya portrays the role of Amelda Andretti – Belly’s older sister with a somewhat troubled past.
What are the difficulties they face ?
The first chapter was a huge challenge for Lola Tung to shoot. It had to be shot in only one day. Although she was not in the script, she suddenly found herself at the set realizing that she was being directed by herself and performing her own dialogue. It was a nerve-wracking experience for her. The main message is that certain things can only be realized by experiencing them firsthand. You should not live your life in the shadow of your past because you have no knowledge of what it feels like to be hurt or to change.
Who is the antagonist ? What are its motives ?
The antagonist is keeping Belly from making her dream of being a successful artist come true. The antagonist is also the reason why Belly is not at peace with herself. Why should you watch the film .This film is a lot like no other that you have seen before. It has a very captivating story. The director is also the screenwriter and actress in it. It seems that the words that she speaks come directly from her heart, which makes them even more sincere and touching. The best part is that the film has been filmed on location in San Francisco, Palo Alto and Santa Cruz, so if you will ever travel to California, you can go to see the places that Belly Conklin lives in.
What are the epic scenes ?
This film has some very emotional scenes, such as when Jeremiah goes back to his hometown. In that scene, you can feel the pain he feels knowing that Belly lives there with her cruel and abusive father. Also, the scene where Belly tells Jeremiah that they cannot get together because her mother forbids it is very powerful. Those are just a few of the epic scenes in this film. Lola Tung’s character Belly Conklin is the most loved character in this film. Her performance leaves a very deep impression on audiences.
