A quirky, coming-of-age dramedy about Scout, a rebellious, slightly bad-ass fifteen-year-old girl from the wrong side of the tracks who convinces a wealthy suicidal mental patient to go on a road trip with her across West Texas to track down her little sister who's been taken by the father who abandoned them. At its heart this is a story about family and how two unlikely misfits come together to create their own family.

A sweet little flick with likable characters! And some big names - Danny Glover, Ellen Burstyn, Nikki Reed and Jane Seymour. This is more a story of a young independent minded girl full of courage; and not rebellion as the description claims.

Here's the setup - Scout & Lulu are sisters with quite a few years difference in their age. Scout is a teenager and Lulu is still a very young child and both live with their sickly grandmother. Scout & Lulu are very close. Their carnie ne'er-do-well father shows up one day and takes Lulu away with him. In the meantime Scout has befriended an emotionally damaged young man who is a resident in a very posh psychiatric hospital and dealing with his suicidal thoughts. These two decide to go on the road to get Lulu away from the father.

This is a fine road movie with mostly unbelievable characters but the performances by the actors bring these characters to life which makes for a good story and a nice movie. Of course there is sorrow, loss and happiness along the way. It's well worth watching for light entertainment!
