A Gem of a Movie
22 February 2018 | by dollypeppersSee all my reviews

I'm so glad I stumbled across this on Netflix. It was so good. At its heart this is a story about family and what you will do to preserve it. This movie has a lot of soul to it; it's funny and it's moving. It's dramatic and it's somewhat bittersweet.

When mom goes to jail, what are two school age sisters with a younger brother to do? The bills pile up and CPS comes call. Dad's kind of a goofy wreck who claims he's the best dad in the world... when he's not there. The older sister is trying to get her plans together so she can go to college and get out of the little town that's keeping them down. It seems like everything is conspiring to keep these girls as nothings but that all turns around when they start robbing trains.

I appreciated how all the characters were written, they felt really real to me. And as I said before this is a very funny movie. I laughed out loud quite a bit. But it was also touching, if you have siblings you will feel those moments where the sisters conflict or work together. Give it a shot, you won't regret watching it.
