A Gritty and Depressing Drama
16 November 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this once several years ago. It was interesting to see Dewhurst and Follows acting together in something other than the cherry blossomed "Anne of Green Gables". Dewhurst is holed up in her room throughout most of the film and is sometimes seen crawling around the floor looking for another full liquor bottle - she usually finds one. Follows acts too angry and sullen most of the time and lashes out too much at everything and everyone around her. Her dream of 'escaping-small- town-life' is a tiring cliché seen many times before in films that are set in rural areas.

A good film, but these two have fared better in "Anne Of Green Gables" instead of this depressing, modern day gritty drama. It was a good effort, but unremarkable.
