Caterina va in città (Caterina in the Big City) is an Italian movie directed by Paolo Virzi. 

When her parents move from a seaside town in Tuscany to an ailing aunt's apartment in the big city, Caterina is ready for something new, but she finds her new private school is a microcosm of the cultural and political divisions of Italian society.  Her class is split between revolutionary no-globals and rich kids who parrot their parents' conservative ideas. Both sides try to bring the new girl into their sphere of influence. What hope is there for someone who doesn't play the game?
