The movie starts off simple (no beating around the bush and stretching the story; it is straight to the point) with Jay (Scott Speedman) who is a janitor in a psychiatric hospital. Jay owes a lot of people money and is actually on probation for the janitor job. He likes to spend some of his time with some of the patients. But the psychiatrist does not approve of this as Jay usually provides them with porn materials and booze. Anyway, one night, he saves Daisy (Evan Rachel Wood), a newly admitted patient in the psychiatric hospital, from getting raped. From that point, Daisy follows Jay as she does not want to stay at the hospital. As the story unfolds, we learn that Daisy has never stepped out of her house her entire life when her mother was alive. She is different and her sense of communication is different as well. Daisy is naive and we even see her lack of awareness of social rules but her character is nevertheless charming and will warm your heart as she is innocent and genuine in her own way. Jay takes Daisy home for his brother's wedding. Things soon get messy as Jay's parents find out about the real identity of Daisy. This movie was heart warming and different. Evan Rachel Wood portrayed the character of Daisy so well. The way she acted confused in pure innocence and the way she responded to the environment around her was amazing. She played her role really well. Loved it!
