Movie Haiku:Yet another adaptation of a YA novel surfs the TWILIGHT wave. This time our perfect high school heroine is a classical cellist who falls for a local Rocker. And then--oh, no--Mom & Dad are killed in a car crash & our heroine must decide whether to join them or go to Julliard. OMG: So fake! So false! So totally boring! Surely feisty Moretz deserves better. NEVER TO BE SEEN BY RICH!
