Peter Chelsom (SERENDIPITY, SHALL WE DANCE?) directs teen superstar Miley Cyrus in this feature that brings the popular Disney Channel character Hannah Montana to the big screen. With a crazy double life in California as an everyday teen with the secret pop-star persona Hannah Montana, Miley Stewart (Cyrus) has forgotten who she really is. To get her back on track, Mileys dad, Robby Ray Stewart (Mileys real-life father, Billy Ray Cyrus), decides that she needs some time back on the family farm in Tennessee to celebrate Grandma Rubys (Margo Martindale) birthday. At first, Miley is belligerent, but with the help of Travis (Lucas Till), a former childhood crush who now works for Grandma Ruby as a farmhand, she begins to realize what is really important to her.
Cyrus is famous for her girl-next-door personality, easy smile, and mugging for the camera, which abounds in this film. The coming-of-age tale also delves into the trials and tribulations of growing up and dealing with your first love, which is made all the more complicated by her secret superstar life. Tills Travis is sure to make every teenage girl want her own well-mannered cowboy. Vanessa Williams appears as Miley/Hannahs pushy publicist and Peter Gunn is a sneaky English journalist intent on getting some dirt on Hannah. Jason Earles and Emily Osment reprise their television roles as Mileys brother, Jackson, and her best friend, Lilly. Country music fans will enjoy performances from Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, and Billy Ray Cyrus himself. The film also includes 12 new songs from Miley/Hannah.
