A MUST SEE FILM FOR MEN AND WOMEN !
18 June 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film kept my interest right to the very end and gave me lots of food for thought afterwards. Everything about this film is down to earth, just like everyday Life is. Rebecca DeMornay,(Arlene Holsclaw) starts out running away from prison through the woods with a child in her belly and hitchhikes to the nearest town. Lots of trouble starts in this town which you cannot even imagine. Arlie, (which she hates to be called, perferring Arlene) tries to live a normal life after being introduced to religion from (Richard Jenkins) Prison Chaplin. She is helped by a kind soul (Carole Mitchell Leon) Ruby, who sort of takes her under her wing and tries to get her a job as a dishwasher, however, Arlene perfers to sell her fantastic knitting art work. She runs into an old devil of a boyfriend (Robert Knepper) Carl, who tries to become her pimp and tells her to stop reading the Bible. Arlene is tricked out of her prision money to the tune of $500.00 and seems to wear the same old prison dress she was issued at the beginning of the picture. Your heart goes out to Arlene, she just cannot get things to work out for her and life deals her a very bad hand in everyway possible. Her mother, (Ellen Burstyn) is a heartless and evil mommie who gives her child away and watches her own flesh and blood be molested by a family member. This picture clearly depicts what mother's and father's can do to their children with physical and mental abuse. Arlene represents all the young girls who have gone through CHILD ABUSE and have never had a normal life since. It is a sad picture, but a picture that has a great deal of TRUTH and realism. Young men and Young woman should SPEAK OUT RIGHT AWAY! whenever these people( family or friends) try to abuse you in anyway.
