Girl in Progress is a modern day coming of age story with a twist. The main character is a girl in high school whom’s mother was a teen mom. When she learns about the meaning of a coming of age story in class she decides to make her own timeline so that she can grow up faster and get out of the house to be away from her mom. Her timeline includes doing all the bad things that might happen to a girl, but the difference is she is planning out everything and forcing it to happen.
The movie is amazing and perfect for a mother and daughter to go see together as a girls night out. My favorite part of the movie is when she starts planning out the timelines of events that she thinks that she has to go through in order to come of age. Girls all around the world can relate to the movie because at some point or another you will find your self in at least one situation that she get herself into.
This movie can open up conversations between mothers and daughters as well as be a learning experience.
Full Disclosure: I was given the chance to screen this movie in advance. All opinions are 100% mine.
