the story followed Ramona, a third grader who was very creative and adventurous. her father Robert lost his job, which might led to them losing their house. Ramona tried selling lemonade and washing car to earn some money with the aim of saving the house. but eventually everything backfired. Beezus was her elder sister, whose love life often got ruined by Ramona. despite their constant bickering, they supported each other throughout the period of uncertainty.
the film was thoroughly entertaining. it was so unexpectedly emotional that so much tears were shed, more than i remembered for any film! Ramona was a mischievous child trying to help out but causing even more trouble in return. yet her sincerity clearly overwrote those trouble and made her even more lovable. she stood out so much that it was impossible to care more about any other characters. despite being a small family film, it was so rewarding and satisfying that it felt huge!
