    This film follows a teenage girl through various foster homes following the arrest of her mother who she was very close to. The theme of searching, constantly seeking and the contrasting worlds through which Astrid wanders are intriguing and thought-provoking. The exploration of the mother-daughter relationship is also shown in both unique and familiar forms lending more thought on a confusing relationship to begin with.

    Michelle Pfeiffer's character as Alison Lohman's mother makes Joan Crawford (subject of "Mommie Dearest") seem warm and fuzzy. As Lohman skips from foster home to foster home as a direct result of her mother's malignant interference, she eventually learns what to expect . . . and then becomes old enough to do something about it. Gritty and gut-wrenching, this movie is compelling enough to keep you captivated until the very end.
