From New Zealand comes this sublime coming-of-age story. The film concentrates on Janey, a Lolita-ish 13-year-old girl who goes off on a beach vacation with her parents and younger brother. Things start to disintegrate thanks to her well-liquored parents' impending divorce. Soon, the puberty-addled Janey is setting her sights on a hunky photographer (who just happens to be having an affair with her mother). The film is lush and sensual, but stumbles a bit with its melancholy mood and rather expected story arc. 92 minutes
