Audience Reviews for Beautiful Ohio
This was a waste of my time. It was a huge disappointment because I really like Michelle Trachtenberg. It's about a messed up family that gives all their attention to their genius son who is into all the bad stuff you can think of and his parents don't do anything about it. What was the point? It didn't have a good message it just seemed like a lot of random scenes that make you feel like the human condition is depressing.More
