Wild Child (2008)


Comedy, Drama, Romance |

Wild Child is a teen comedy film directed by Nick Moore and starring Emma Roberts, Alex Pettyfer, Georgia King, Kimberley Nixon, Juno Temple, Linzey Cocker, Sophie Wu, Aidan Quinn and Natasha Richardson.

Poppy Moore, an affluent Malibu teenager, executes a wild prank to ruin all of her widowed father’s girlfriend’s belongings in front of her friends and younger sister, Molly, telling everyone to throw away whatever they want and take it for themselves. When her father, Gerry, arrives on the scene, he announces that he is sending her to a boarding school in England.

Arriving at the school, Abbey Mount, Poppy meets the headmistress, Mrs. Kingsley, head girl, Harriet Bentley and her minions Jane and Charlotte, her “big sister”, Kate, and roommates, Josie, Kiki and Jennifer “Drippy” Logan. Poppy’s entire suitcase is left out in the rain, soaking everything. She meets the Matron and orders her to wash, dry and iron all her clothes. This lands the girls with three Sunday’s detention, leaving her with no friends and her dormmates expressing their hate to her. She is miserable in her new life, feeling that she does not fit in as an outsider.

After a small fight with Harriet in gym class, Poppy is called to the Headmistress’ Office, where she is punished. Poppy on a bench outside sulking, Harriet spots her and orders her “maid”, an intimidated Year 7 student, to drench Poppy with dirty coffee-filled water; this ultimately results in Poppy and Kate starting to form a friendship after Kate learns that Poppy’s mother died in a car crash when Poppy was eleven.
