Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There's an emotional scene where Eloise is under the impression Mrs. Thorton has died, and later believes she see's her ghost. (It's a missunderstanding)
  • Brooks locks Eloise in a storage locker, leaving her crying and alone.
  • Mrs. Thorton is in danger of being evicted from the plaza, which could be a touchy subject at this time (2008) due to the foreclosure crisis in the US. At the end of the film she is allowed to stay for the rest of her life however.
