Incredibly sad
8 January 2020 | by danmcn61-1See all my reviews

I can't understand the motivation behind some of the negative reviews I see here. Yes, the film is as entertaining as day-old coffee, but that is the point! Ashley is a 17-year old girl, without real friends and her mother is angry & broken-hearted herself, and nobody understands her pain or why she is so withdrawn. If you can't understand that, then your adolescence must have been pretty peachy indeed. Most of us losers felt lost and alone and didn't have the verbal skills to even explain why we felt so hopeless. I'm not going to ruin the movie by spoiling the ending except to say that she has strength in there somewhere and it finally appears. This film was haunting and I highly recommend it.
