Some nice moments but what a waste
24 November 2004 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

Well it wasn't such that it was a bad movie because it

had good moments and it got you thinking about the subject matter.

Jenny Lewis playing the daughter Jade was gorgeous to watch, and lovely to look at. She made the movie for me over the lead role by Beverly D'Angelo.

Speaking of which and you can flame away folks, but to me the mother came across as a bit self obsessed and full of herself, to the point of not noticing her own daughter, or caring.

Which leaves you feeling sorry for everyone in the movie because no one single person was to blame for what happens to poor Jade. The mother is in her own little world and she is pretty much left to her own devices and her only friend Horizon who she goes to school with.

Overall a good movie I'd give it a generous rating.

6/10 John
