It's actually not that sad that Claudia's dad never comes around because her acting needed some improvement at that time in her life. my question is: what is the big deal claudia?! Your friends care about you! They are not going to think you're a weirdo freak just be cause youre father is estranged from your family. Earth to Claudia! That's what family is for!
If you haven't seen it then I shall say no more, its very classy. That's all.
