Susan Sarandon stars as Adele august, a bay city, wisconsin, mother who longs for a more exciting and glamorous life in Beverly Hills, California. So she leaves her husband (Ray Baker) and packs her reluctant daughter ann (Natalie Portman) into a gold mercedes benz, heading for L.A. When they arrive and move into an apartment they can't really afford, it becomes clear that ann is the mature half of the duo, while adele, a dreamer, is not firmly grounded in reality. Her plans include Ann's future career as an actress (a profession in which the girl has no interest) and landing a rich and handsome husband for herself, such as a dentist (Hart Bochner) who never calls adele again after a one-night stand. When a family tragedy provokes a crisis between mother and daughter, the irresponsible adele is forced to become a traditional mom for once.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Wang once again works splendidly with actresses, and boy, does he have a lot to work with this time.
Rotten: You start wishing you were anywhere but here -- preferably at last year's far funnier Slums of Beverly Hills.
Fresh: This Wayne Wang-directed movie hands Sarandon one of the richest comic-dramatic opportunities of her career -- while also confirming Portman as one of her own generation's best and brightest.
Fresh: Anywhere But Here is a wonderful showcase for Natalie Portman, who gives an Oscar-caliber performance.
