A rebellious Malibu princess is shipped off to a strict English boarding school by her father.

The scene begins with the playing of soft, gentle music. The viewer can see the ocean in the background of a shot, this signifies the film is set somewhere exotic, possibly an american beach. The camera zooms in through a window looking at a sleeping girl in a very large and pink bedroom. The girl has long blonde hair and is wearing a floaty pink dressing gown. The girl looks quite innocent with the soft music playing in the background. Until she awakes and realises she has slept  in, swears and the music changes dramatically from classical piano piece of music, to a piece of rock/pop music involving electric guitars. This shows the audience that she is not the innocent little girl she is portrayed as, but is actually more of a spoiled brat. The Mise-en-scene of the girl’s bedroom shows she is very wealthy. Her bedroom is neat and tidy with a lot of pink, a large bed, vanity mirror, and a large wardrobe.                      
This character from Wild Child relates to our main girl in mine and Maddy's project. The character is similar to the girl in Wild Child as they are both very wealthy, have large pink rooms and are interested in expensive designer labels. The main character in Wild Child has a designer Louis Vuitton handbag and shoes. Our main character also has a Louis Vuitton bag and a Dolce and Gabanana watch. These are two very well known designers and are well distinguished for their price and popularity among the rich and famous.    
Other similarities between the two characters are the style in which they dress. They both wear glittery, expensive looking dresses for day wear. This shows they are both formal and extravagant. This also allows for the characters to stand out in a crowd.
