"Motion" Sickness
27 April 2004 | by (fairview, nj) – See all my reviews

LUMINOUS MOTION (2000) 1/2 * Deborah Kara Unger, Eric Lloyd, Jamey Sheridan, Terry Kinney.

Incredibly lethargic and horribly directed/acted/written

adaptation of a novel by Scott Bradfield about boozy, irresponsible Unger as a mother of maddeningly pretentious 10 year old Lloyd

and their aimless road trip to nowhereseville that lacks any

cohesion. Avoid this at all costs.
