Read Caro Ness's film review of Wild Child

In Making Wild Child we follow the director, writer, producers and Emma, Alex et al as they make the film. It runs to about 11 and a half minutes and is an intelligent addition to the genre and far more interesting than most “making of” features. This is complemented by Head Girl Tour - a tiny piece of film (about 2 minutes' worth) featuring Georgia King as Harriet, taking us on a comedy tour of the school and set.

The Lacrosse extra, meanwhile, shows the girls grappling with the complexities of the game and gradually improving. This is probably only interesting if you have played this infuriating but wonderful game yourself.

Ghostville is made like a home-made movie and features Alex Pettyfer luring the girls into a dark and sinister corridor, while School Memories sees the girls share their own memories of their schooldays. They all have different experiences, none too strange, but Emma was home schooled so most of hers is of sitting at home.

All in all, the extras only add up to just over 20 minutes of features, which is on the mean side but the film itself is well made.
