Movie Info

A mother and daughter attempt to conquer Las Vegas in this domestic drama co-directed by Brian J. De Palma and Russ Brandt. Emily (Brittany Murphy) and Reese Nicholson (Karen Allen) moved to Las Vegas with the intention of fulfilling Reese's dream of becoming a singer. However, their financial obligations force Reese into becoming involved in the dark underbelly of Sin City. Further complicating matters is Reese's alcoholism, which frequently forces Emily to play a maternal role with her own mother. Emily begins to realize that a fresh start is more complicated than she first thought, though reaching the goals that she and her mother had set for themselves are not entirely out of reach.

Audience Reviews for Falling Sky


If you like tear jerkers, this one is for you. If you have ever dealt with suicide, this one is for you. I hate tear jerkers but this is one film that is outstanding. It was genuine and not unrealistic like a lot of movies. this movie is true to what people go through living with an alcoholic and/or dealing with suicide. The acting in this movie was fantastic.
