Movie Info

For fifteen-year-old Ruthie Carmichael and her young mother, Rita, life has never been stable. Fleeing Rita's latest boyfriend, they find themselves living out of their beat-up car, and heading east in search of a better life. When money runs out and their car breaks down, they become stranded in a small town where Rita ultimately lands a steady job waitressing at Tiny's, a local diner where they begin to develop a family: tender-hearted Marty, the owner of the diner, and Pam, a transgender waitress with big dreams who becomes Ruthie's closest friend.

Critic Reviews for All We Had

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (8)

Even in a rote story, with prosaic direction from Holmes, the lead performances ring true.

Top Critic

With her well-meaning desire to create an inspirational story of survival and redemption, Holmes has kept the entire film extremely low-stakes.

Top Critic

A well-meaning but formulaic movie with not enough time to transcend predictable clichés.

New York Times
Top Critic

Every plot turn plays as either a little too convenient, too uncharacteristic, or too undercooked.

TheWrap
Top Critic

The movie is overloaded with capital-D drama, from Mark Consuelos ludicrous role as a Rita's bad boyfriend to the typical drug and discipline platitudes that face Ruth in high school.

December 8, 2016 | Rating: C | Full Review…
Entertainment Weekly
Top Critic

Although well-acted and well-intended, offers little that's new, exciting or meaty enough to warrant revisiting that subgenre of movies involving flighty single moms on the move with their steadier daughters.
