Storyline

Thirteen-year-old Ruthie Carmichael and her mother, Rita teeter on the edge of poverty, despite Rita working multiple jobs. When their landlord kicks them out, Rita uses her looks to instantly reel in a boyfriend, who takes them in. Before long, Ruthie convinces her mother to leave and they head East in search of a better life. When money runs out and their car breaks down, they find themselves stranded in a small town called Fat River where their luck finally takes a turn. Rita lands a steady job waitressing at the local diner. With enough money to pay their bills, they rent a house and Fat River becomes the first place they call home. Peter Pam, a transgender waitress, becomes Ruthie's closest friend. The townspeople become Ruthie and Rita's family. Into this quirky utopia comes smooth-talking mortgage broker Vick Ward, who entices Rita with a subprime loan. Almost as soon as Rita buys a house their fortunes change.

Excellent.
24 July 2017 | by zaethermindSee all my reviews

Well, I haven't read the novel...yet. I just watched the movie as I always do, patiently, and I can tell you the acting was great, really top notch from everyone. I don't care how many movies shared a similar plot, I can tell you for sure this one was done right. It's true it's a bit slow at times, but it's understandable. A movie for people who can still feel with their heart, not with stupid super-heroes, not with cgi or something which nowadays appear way too often in movies. For an indie debut movie, excellent.
