Storyline

Virginia is a charming, yet mentally ill mother whose greatest love is her protector and illegitimate son, Emmett. But her longest love belongs to the local-married-Mormon Sheriff, who is running for public office and might very well be Emmett's father. This boardwalk town's well-kept secrets are threatened when Virginia's son begins a romantic relationship with Tipton's daughter. "What's Wrong With Virginia" is a humorous, heartfelt drama that pokes at the American dream as it charges toward a climactic shoot out that begs the question: can a woman like Virginia ever play the part of mom?

Confusing
2 May 2018 | by JohnnyLee1See all my reviews

It's always difficult to portray mental illness but the mixture of comedy and violence in this movie totally confused the issue.
