Teen Movie All She Wishes on Digital and On DemandCategory: Television
We all know high school is a difficult time – unless you’re the star of the football team or the head cheerleader. But even those kids have issues. All She Wishes is a cute teen film about high school senior, Sophie O’Dea (Lexi Giovagnoli), who desperately wants to finish school and get away from her small town and the people there. Ever since her mother passed away, she has been miserable. Her only joy is her photography.
For her birthday her father gives her a frame in which to put one of her photos. Like most frames, this one comes with a pre-printed photo. The photo is of a young male model/actor. He’s kind of cute, and even Sophie thinks he’s a hottie. Her grandmother Grace (Julia Duffy) gives Sophie her old car telling her that the car, named Star, has magical powers. Even her father claims the car is “haunted.”
The Valentine’s Day dance is coming up and Sophie doesn’t want to go alone. While driving Star (the magical car), she sets the picture frame on the passenger seat and ends up talking to the picture. Inadvertently she wishes she could talk the guy in the photo to the dance. Then, lo and behold, guess who magically shows up in the trunk of the car? Yep, it’s Drake (Calum Worthy), the model/actor from the picture frame. Every time she lets him out of the trunk and drives away, he appears back in the trunk again, wondering how he got there when just a few minutes ago he was in Los Angeles.
Well, as it turns out, Star is magic after all. Drake hangs out with Sophie while they try to figure out how to get him home to Los Angeles. After all, he has an audition in a couple days and needs to be there. But every time he and Sophie put some distance between them, he suddenly “poofs” back near her.
While you might think this is a story of finding true love, you would be wrong – in a way. It is Sophie who discovers that special person in herself. Drake, the flighty, peppy, young actor is completely opposite of Sophie who is an introvert, quiet, and basically unhappy with her life. The two end up learning a lot from each other, and Sophie finally comes out of her shell and discovers how to enjoy life again.
All She Wishes is a magical Valentine’s Day movie for teens. I’ll bet when you go to a store and see the picture frames you’ll have a new appreciation for the people in the pictures.
