Can you handle a punch to the heart?
If so, you’re ready for this superb drama, which follows a brilliant troublemaker of a girl, and her wayward mom, as they try to stay a step ahead of crushing reality.
Life isn’t easy, and there aren’t necessarily happy endings waiting, even if the duo camp out a hop and skip away from Disneyworld.
Willem Dafoe, the only “name” actor in the piece, is a motel manager who carefully orbits their world.
He has compassion, and heart, but will not be a sucker, ever.
The best of what low-budget cinema can be.
