Watch the movie trailer of Wild Child below:
Poppy Moore’s mother’s death five years ago leaves her to party and live life somewhat inappropriately. After warnings from her father to send her to boarding school in England – as her mother did – she jumps into the Pacific near her beach side abode, he sends her to England. She is forced to leave behind her luxurious life and go to boarding school. Here she finds no sun to tan in, uniform, restricted cell phone use, and her designer duds are soaked from being left in a rainstorm. After being bullied and losing her spoiled treatment, she is determined to leave, forced to attempt to get expelled by snogging the headmistress’s son, Freddie. Before she knows it, she is falling head over heels for him. Her ticket out is her only reason to stay. One night, she finds out her mother attended the exact same boarding school… Before she knows it, she loses her blonde locks and goes brunette. But after she tries and finally heals after her mother’s death, she may get to go home… But does she want to?
