Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Though its pile-up of poverty, humiliation and bitterness threatens to make it a miserablist moral crusade, the film finds forward momentum in its protagonist, who is not yet ready to be destroyed by what the world has saddled her with.
This movie is amazing. It’s beautifully written and well directed. The main character is so compelling and this is may be my favorite role of Laura Bell Bundy’s.
Important and Special film
I loved this film. It illustrates a complicated relationship between devastation and empowerment. Much props to this film maker and his cast.
This is a story about a mother’s love
This is a movie about love. This is a movie about the choice, of yourself or your child. This is a movie that is about pushing through the unthinkable for someone else....I have never questioned what lengths I would go to for my kids—this was beyond that...it is a film that is heavy and necessary and shows what a mother will do for their children...in the most darkest, hardest and selfless way.
