Trite and unconvincing, plastic feel-good pic is unlikely to stoke many good feelings.

6.5/10. Very nicely directed and the performances by Lily Taylor and Courtney Love are excellent. Believably done, great character development and a very interesting story.

I was pleasantly surprised by this little film. Lili Taylor is great as usual, but Courtney Love was shockingly very good. I never knew that she had any abilities beyond being a drugged out prostitute lol. I thought this was inspiring and enjoyable:)
