Seduction and Secrets, in a Beautiful Coming to Age Drama
18 February 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 1971, in the small town of Shirley Falls, in Maine, the odd and lonely secretary Isabelle Goodrow (Elisabeth Shue) raises her teenager daughter Amy (Hanna R. Hall) alone. She has only two friends in her job among her gossiper colleagues. When her overprotected daughter is seduced by her mathematic teacher Peter Robertson (Martin Donovan), the world of Isabelle falls apart. She becomes lost and loses her confidence on Amy, spoiling their relationship. Their bond gets tied again when Isabelle discloses her inner secrets from the past to Amy.

Although being very predictable, "Amy & Isabelle" is a beautiful coming to age drama. The good direction and acting never lets the story becomes a soap opera, although dealing with elements like seduction and secrets. The innocence of the face and look of the gorgeous Hanna R. Hall is amazing. I was impressed (and quite disappointed) how fat the lovely and still beautiful Elisabeth Shue, one of my favorite actresses ever, is. But her and Hanna R. Hall performances were really great. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Inocência Marcada" ("Marked Innocence")
