Storyline

When Erica French opts to keep the baby she conceived in high school, she never dreamed that one day she would be fighting for custody against the child's father, Scott Stone. Scott Stone initially fought for custody when Erica threatened to cut off his access to their daughter. Scott continues to try to be a part of his daughter's life, but when Molly first breaks her arm at the playground then Scott's mother finds mysterious bruises on her granddaughter, Scott again fights for custody of young Molly, and this time he wins because the court feels his family can provide a more stable environment for Molly than a public daycare can.

When Innocence is Lost...And Regained ***1/2
19 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The sudden change at the very end spoiled an extremely good picture.

Of course, there are some questions that one has to ask: Since when does a girl who attends wild parties and drinks is able to attain an A average in high school and get accepted to Cornell? This is a little too difficult to comprehend.

Also, if mom, Jill Clayburgh, divorced when the Russell character was 3, how do you explain the much younger sister?

Yet, with these 2 issues aside, we have an awfully good film here where a young lady, trying to make good, by raising her daughter and going to Cornell, has to face a custody battle with her ex-boyfriend, the father of the child, when she puts the young child in day-care. Had the case gone against the woman,divorced women would be pulling their youngsters out of daycare en masse.

The very end is done too quickly and spoils the subject matter. We leave this film with not such a good taste in our mouths. Nevertheless, we have a fine story line here and the acting by all is top notch.
