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.

Boring and slow
2 June 2017 | by lgclark-2See all my reviews

Have you ever watched a movie that started out with a lot of promise and then it became a boring drag? "All We Had" is one of those. The main characters are interesting in the beginning but very quickly I was anxious for this thing to get over with because I no longer cared how it turned out. The acting was top notch and Caties Holmes' directing was adequate but the story was very clichéd and would have played better as a comedy.
