Early in the film, while heading west to Missouri from North Carolina, Mary Jo glances out the driver's window and comments on the beautiful sunrise, which should have been behind the car (east), not to its left (south). See more »
The other review of this film misses the point entirely. There is indeed tension, of the emotional variety, between daughter and mother. The child is the adult and the adult is child-like. One always hopes for the mother to make the right decision, to turn her and her daughter's life around. The performances are of the highest caliber, as is the writing, and the direction complements both beautifully, never getting in the way of the simple story. Watch this with a parent, a son, a daughter...a rewarding viewing experience.
