Dwyer's performance as Amy is so real it keeps you rooting for her. She doesn't get all sappy and sentimental and try to tug at your heartstrings. She reminded me of girl I used to know. She tries to be strong but is really so vulnerable. I really felt for her. Especially the last scene at the end with her Mom. It was really touching. I would like to see more of her.
I saw the film at Cinequest and was surprised at how gritty it was. James McGowan is good too and the film makers did a lot with a shockingly low budget. But the real reason to see the film is definitely Dwyer.
