Close but no Cigar
Famke Janssen has managed to put all of the elements of a great
independent movie together here but somehow the chemistry never grabs
you really hard. Milla Jovovich's character is somebody who thinks they
understand the American Dream from watching TV and from the movies that
she is often quoting. The reality in America however is that the
"American Dream" is much more complicated than she ever imagined. Milla
Jovovich and Spencer List are very convincing as the mother and son duo
and the portrayal of their relationship is what carries the movie.
Pullamn does well but is careful not to grab the attention away from
the two main characters. The colours and costumes stand out against the
bleak Oklahoma backdrop. It is a good movie and it is easy to watch. It
is not the sort of movie that will interest people who do not regularly
watch small independent movies.
