A gifted 14-year-old violinist (Evan Rachel Wood) has given up summer camp with her friends in order to get
ready for her audition with a prestigious youth orchestra. She also keeps busy as the neighborhood "secret keeper": for a nominal 50 cent
fee she'll keep any child's secret, including incriminating evidence such as broken china, bric-a-brac, etc. Eventually, however, she
discovers that keeping secrets can be much costlier. Also with Michael Angarano, Vivica A. Fox, David Gallagher and Danielle Chuchran. [1:47]
SEX/NUDITY 3 - A 15-year-old young man and a 14-year-old young woman kiss. A young woman kisses a young man on the cheek. A
young man touches a young woman's hair, and a young man moves closer to a young woman while they talk and she pulls away. A young man and
a young woman look at each other admiringly and flirt. Two young men talk about a young woman being pretty. A young woman looks longingly
at a poster of a man several times (the poster appears to have a lipstick outline of a kiss on it). A 9-year-old girl writes romantic
e-mails to an older boy pretending that she is 14, and she's dressed in jewelry and grown-up make-up. A young man talks to a young woman
via videotape, and makes a reference to her "developing" and throws her kisses. Young women wear mini-skirts and some tight-fitting
VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A young woman falls from a rooftop and lands on the ground below; we see her neck in a brace as she is
wheeled away on a stretcher and we see a bandaged cut on her forehead later. We hear that a man and a woman were hit head-on by a drunk
driver and were killed; their baby in the back seat of the car was spared. There are a few conversations about young men stealing a car,
driving after having beer (while impairment is implied, one character argues that they were not intoxicated) and hitting another car head-on and injuring the driver of the
other car. A young man grabs another young man by the shoulder, drags him away from a party and yells at him. A young woman becomes
overwhelmed (she looks unnerved) by the sound of crying babies while in a store. A young woman and her parents argue a few times. A woman
goes into labor and we see her pushing during delivery and hear her moaning; we see the baby at the time of delivery covered with some
goo. A young man makes the gesture for gagging (finger in his mouth). We see a sonogram image of a baby in the womb and see the mother's
bare abdomen during the test. We see lots of broken crockery and other fragile items.

(Note: A man and woman open a bottle of champagne, but we don't see them drinking it. There is a strong "don't drink and drive"
