Audience Reviews for Rambling Rose

    Dern is great. However, the movie attempts to be a straightforward character study but that is undermined by it's consistent tone problems.

    Rambling Rose is the definitive Laura Dern performance. I particularly like mother-daughter performances as there is often additional sizzle to fictional work and Dern and Diane Ladd don't disappoint.

    This movie is retarded.

    Was not expecting to enjoy this at all but it's a very well acted film, that has one or two suprising scenes. 7/10
