Diamond in the Rough is a comedy following a young woman as she tries to find her place in life. She joins a stuffy country club and starts to help transfer the success of the business. While she battles a stuck-up member who looks down on everyone else at the club.
This is a fun comedy about finding your place in life. It looks to break down barriers that have passed traditions have held back. Having a full ‘Mean Girls’ vibe and even mentions not going that far. Showing that bitter rivals can see things escalate too much in life. Samantha Boscarino is great in the leading role, brimming with confidence in the role. She is the one that stands out the most throughout the film.
