While "Dear Lemon Lima" may seem too quirky for some viewers, one would have to be a robot to not enjoy its sweet and simple storyline. The opening credits are a sequence of animated bunnies, unicorns, rainbows, and hearts, which might turn off some people, but the doodles are the artwork of a young girl who will remind you of a little sister you affectionately roll your eyes at.
The boy who breaks her heart at the beginning is perfectly prep school pretentious, and the rest of the characters are also humorously eccentric. It's easy to embrace their quirkiness because unlike other similar films such as "Juno", these characters seem more realistic, and the dialogue is more natural.
Some aspects seem implausible, as the school places heavy emphasis on multiculturalism and encourages the prominently white student body to familiarize themselves with other cultures. The charming scenes are tempered by heartrending ones, so the film is not all sunshine and rainbows. The plot is predictable , but the film was is never trying to be mysterious or edgy. Writer-director Susie Yoonessi is simply reminding us of what it's like to be young, in love, heartbroken, and unsure of yourself.
