Audience Reviews for America
An immersive film that takes it's time to set up everything and let in unfold naturally, almost. The ending seems hurried and slightly out place. The acting is really strong though and I liked how it showed to deal with people who have nothing.
Nothing about this film is convincing. The performances do not ring true, the situations are melodramatic and trite, the writing belongs more in Readers Digest than in a film. The attempts at style fail miserably. I am sure everyone involved meant well, but the result is a failure.
This was pretty good. I was kind of expecting more by the way the network hyped it up, but good nonetheless. It's been done a million times, but I never really tire of seeing a youth-in-trouble-and-trying-to-get-out-of-it story. Love Rosie O' Donnell as well, she's great in pretty much everything!
