Story


In an effort to escape her murky past and build a better future, Olive (Milla Jovovich), a nomadic European con-artist, and her 10-year-old American-born son, Bobby (Spencer List), find themselves living in Oklahoma.

As her top priority, Olive seeks to give Bobby the things she never had. But despite of her efforts (or perhaps because of them) Bobby displays troubling behavior both at his school and in their conservative neighborhood. Things take a turn for the worse after Bobby's unfortunate "run-in" with the local and wealthy businessman Kent (Bill Pullman), and Olive's criminal past finally catches up with her, forcing her to make the toughest judgment of all.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film is shot attractively enough, even if the production design makes us wonder if the film is set in the '70s, the '80s or today..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]
“..sensitively acted, carefully written and directed with heartfelt compassion..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..is just an extended dramatization of the 1980s anti-drug PSA that memorably cautioned, "I learned it by watching you!"..”
by Nick Schager [Slant Magazine]
