This gem of a human/adult/child/family relationship movie is based upon a Dorothy Allison novel. A search through my favorite library web base revealed, that another social-realistic novel turned into film,"Bastard out of California", is also her writing, and as well executed as this one.
Here the search for lost love(to a husband and two daughters) brings a woman to cross barriers of social prejudice and fear of losing love again. A beautiful pretrial of courage to believe in the love in the world. Where "Bastard..." is a story of child molesting, this in a more subtle story about love and forgiveness. Really makes me believe, that there is love to be found. Beautifully directed and cut.
