Based on the novel by Alice Hoffman, Aquamarine is a charming coming of age tale about the enduring power of friendship, which melds the fish-out-of-water comedy of Splash! with the sassy sensibilities of Mean Girls. Screenwriters John Quaintance and Jessica Bendinger never talk down to their target audience - teenage girls - and they develop two strong, believable lead characters, whose journey of self-discovery is tinged with disappointment and tragedy. The film is blessed with winning performances from Joanna 'JoJo' Levesque and Emma Roberts as the 13-year-old best friends, struggling with impending separation.
