Good Story / Cast / Director
10 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Laurie Collyer has made an awesome movie. She told the story well. there was no extraneous stuff. I did feel disappointed by anything that I see. It was a unflinching look at what it is to want something from life and still continue to strive for it even when life keeping smacking us down. Maggie Gyllnehaal has a knack for making me like her (Hillary Swank has that effect on me also). It would be easy to see M. Gyllenhaal's character as a victim but it is so clear that she's not. Briget Barkan, Giancarlo Esposito, Mr. Trejo, all give convincing portraits of people in need. How they get their needs met is often questionable but they keep on trying. It's a very "human" story. Nothing gets fixed. This isn't an "issue" movie. No preaching.
