Very touching movie about a real-life shelter for young pregnant women. Great performances by Rosario Dawson and James Earl Jones - the latter donated his salary to the shelter depicted in the film

Touching film with a feel good ending. Rosario Dawson gives an awesome performance as Apple's mom. Based on a true story, so presuming the account is semi-accurate, it's nice to know there are still some good people in the world.

I have worked with foster children and their parents, as well as at a homeless shelter. This is very realistic!

I loved this film until the end which seemed odd and inconsistent. Despite this, it's definitely worth watching.

Having been a pregnant teen myself, I guess this movie was more real for me than for others who have reviewed. I was much more fortunate than the girls in the movie--but my life could have easily been as tragic. I am not a "mushy" person, but the conclusion of the movie brought me to tears.

There are some problems with the scrip, like all the adults in her life are self-absorbed, selfish jerks--but that is what happens when you are working with a true story and trying to stay true. What is especially meaningful is that although there is a Cinderella ending offered, the girl chooses love over money. Pretty wise and mature choice for a 16 year old.

was not convincing as apple's dad i think his wife was .
I believe that teens should see this movie and take a hard look at
there lives, and thank
God that they have caring parents. I know that i did when i was a teen!

Up until seeing this movie, I wasn't quite convinced that Vanessa Hudgens could act but this movie proved me wrong. Very good film, and great acting from Vanessa.

Some poor writing, mix of not very strong performances and some very strong (the woman who played Apple's mother was amazing) and hints of hidden ideology... but it was worth the watch. Not a great film, but something I will think about.
