Fantastic depiction of mother-daughter relationships
29 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was fantastic - and absolutely got at the heart of every mother daughter relationship angle. As a 30 something woman dealing with her own mother relationship issues, I absolutely adored this film and watched it twice. The director truly did his research. It is funny AND heart wrenching, AND very true. The actors selected for this film were interesting, diverse and gave a terrific performance. It is touching without being sappy and witty without being farcical. The preview gives a very accurate snapshot of the movie so watch it and see for yourself. I give it 2 thumbs up for sure! So grab some popcorn, tissues and hot cocoa and have at it.
