LEMONADE cover image
Lemonade is reminiscent of rural childhood. We follow a girl that is trying to sell lemonade on the corner of her street. She has trouble because no one is outside. The girl finally gives up and then her friend comes over and she has fun.>p>This film appeals to me because the main character is experiencing something that many people can relate to. She is not getting any business at her lemonade stand and gives up. Then her friend George shows up and she finds another way to have fun. She makes the best of a bad situation even after she gives up.

The movie is really good. I like how the kids in the movie are silly, like real kids and they find things to do like coloring and making noises. The production is well done and the angles used to capture the characters are great, even when the background is blurred so you can focus on the main parts. The setting is very pastel and "girly" - which helps define the little girl, from the first time we see her, to watching her make lemonade and walk out of her house dressed in a modified tutu. The actors include Piper Joachim (Natalie), Harrison Hughes (George), and Jennifer Aycock (Natalie's Mom). Piper stands out since she is the main character. My favorite part is when George helps her have fun and they draw pictures and eat cookies.

I give Lemonade 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 10. I recommend this title for a youth & family film festival because kids can easily relate to it and learn a great lesson from it. Reviewed by Tiana S., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
