Billy Bob Thornton,
The needy teenager Rena Grubb lives with her dysfunctional family of losers in a trailer park. The most popular boy in her school is dating her only for sex, and does not want to be seen with her. Her brother Jay is gay; her older half-sister Barbie is a bitch; and her mother Madge works hard in several low-qualification jobs to raise money to support her family. Rena is asking her mother to go to the annual picnic with her beloved missing low-fife father John Grubb, who is in prison sentenced to two life sentences. Rena is pregnant and collects the cards her father sends to her from the prison. When Madge decides to go with her family to the picnic, and along the day, the family finds how mean and nasty John is, shattering the dreams of Rena with her father. Written by

You don't love daddy, do you Jay?
Why not? He's your daddy just like i'm your sister. I haven't done anything for you to just give me your love.
You never tried to shit on it either.
When somebody gives you their love you should try not to shit on it i guess.
I should write that down.
Maybe you should embroider it on something.

This film starts off with a young girl, Rena Gruff, (Jena Malone) sitting on a floor and breaks a picture frame in order to cut her wrists. You also proceed to see Rena try to hang herself on a dead tree limb and her efforts fail. Rena has a half-sister named Jay Gruff who looks down on her younger sister and treats her very badly. Rena also has a brother named Jay Gruff, (Brad Renfo) who is a young boy who seems hen pecked with all the woman around him. However, he loves his mother, Madge, (Michelle Forbes) who loves her family and holds the family together. The father is in prison for killing someone and most of the family do not care very much for him at all. Rena has a deep interest in her father and wants the family to visit their father for a prison picnic and no one in the family really want to attend, but Madge changed the families minds and that is when the film takes a very interesting change and there is some dark comedy, but this film is rather depressing.
