About the Movie
In an effort to escape her murky past and build a better future, Olive (Milla Jovovich), a nomadic European con-artist, and her 10-year-old American-born son, Bobby (Spencer List), find themselves living in Oklahoma. As her top priority, Olive seeks to give Bobby the things she never had. But despite of her efforts (or perhaps because of them) Bobby displays troubling behavior both at his school and in their conservative neighborhood. Things take a turn for the worse after Bobby’s unfortunate “run-in” with the local and wealthy businessman Kent (Bill Pullman), and Olive’s criminal past finally catches up with her, forcing her to make the toughest judgment of all.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: [Its] downfall was ensured by a leading lady who will always be more credible chasing zombies than the American dream.
Rotten: Milla Jovovich delivers an over-the-top peformance in this melodramatic tale of an immigrant con artist and her juvenile delinquent son.
Rotten: The script, by first-time director Famke Janssen, condescends to the heartland, and minor roles collapse to stereotype.
Rotten: Actress Famke Janssen wrote and directed this half-spiky, A-for-effort dramedy about a grifter mom struggling to raise her preteen son on the road.
Did they really allude to the Grant,Hepburn classic movie title? You will never live up to it dummies!
