Moonie Potts (Balaban) is a 15-year-old misf it who will do anything to get out of dreary New Waterford, Nova Scotia. Lou Benzoa (Spencer-Nairn) is a tough girl from the Bronx who couldn’t be happier to be moving to the seaside hamlet.
Lou is as extroverted and impulsive as Moonie is shy and withdrawn, and soon their unlikely friendship starts turning the town upside down. Lou wins over the local girls by punishing their two-timing boyfriends, while Moonie plans a new life in New York City. Hilarious and exuberant, New Waterford Girl paints a touching picture of coming of age in a small town.

I remember watching this movie when it first came out, and I loved it of course I didn't understand all of the jokes when I was that young. But this move honestly gets better ever time I watch it. I absolutely Love it
