Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging | 2008 | Georgia Groome, Eleanor Tomlinson

Gurinder Chadha’s charming coming-of-age comedy stars Georgia Groome as Georgia Nicholson, who is just coming up to 15 and eager to meet boys. When brothers Tom and Robbie (Sean Bourke and Aaron Johnson) join her school, she and best mate Jas (Eleanor Tomlinson) set their sights on them but while Jas scores, Georgia loses out to ‘slaggy’ Lindsay (Kimberley Nixon). Then there’s her bickering parents Bob and Connie (Alan Davies and Karen Taylor) who seem to be heading for a divorce unless she intervenes. As her birthday approaches, will her life fall apart or into place?
