Nam is an ordinary and unattractive 14-year-old girl. She is secretly in love with the most popular boy in high school called Shone. He's hot, perfect, and generous, and that's what makes girls go crazy about him, including Nam too. She tries to do everything to make herself get noticed by her crush in hopes he will look her way.

Rewatch Value 10
This movie was adorable. Both Nam and Shone seem like the kind of people you'd want as your best friends. I didn't want the story to end- I could have watched the characters sit and read the newspaper for 20 more minutes at that point.

That said, I couldn't give it this movie a 10 because there are some problematic ideas about beauty expressed, specifically about skin color. As I watch more Thai movies, I'm realizing the prejudice against darker skin is in fact very real and pressing in Thai culture. Although this isn't a focus of this movie, the idea that darker girls are ugly is clearly present (whether it's completely endorsed or not,.) That makes me concerned about younger girls of color seeing this film without discussing it first.

The first time i watched this movie was in grade 11. I had never watched a thai movie before but my best friend (who's thai) was telling me how she had been rewatching it all weekend and that we had to watch it together. This movie is a really great romantic comedy and it's really suited for those times when you just want to watch something quirky, fun, but still has those serious moments. The plot isn't anything special or out of the blue, it follows the usual rom-com setting and process but there are scenes that are unique in themselves. I find thailand rom-coms in general to be very unique, and it's a good kind of unique. They know how to do rom-coms to their best and purest form. The movie is hilarious throughout and it's just so relatable, it makes you feel SO nostalgic about those days in primary/middle/high school days when we are all oh-so foolish.

There are bad point's about this movie though. As already stated by another reviewer, beauty is one of the themes in this film, and most probably know that, not only in thai media, but in most asian media, light skin is seen as beautiful. Luckily, in this movie, they make up for it by the end of the movie. I don't want to spoil the movie so i won't say why. Another bad point was the ending. I just felt it was a little childish/unrealistic, but don't make that stop you from watching the film. it isn't THAT bad.

Overall, the movie isn't one to skip!
