A remarkable movie exploring the mother /daughter relationship, needs, and the impact of their personal journeys on each other. I was particularly impressed at the resolution meeting with the parents/guardians held with all three teens when they were found out. Sensitively and pointantly drives home the point their is "no guide book" to growth and change but we do need each other's support.

The film escapes me. There is an urge at the beginning to pay attention for people have to make decisions. Yet most of the conversations and actions throughout reflected judgement of decisions that were made that did not conform to the "general understanding" that people should seek "authentic lives". Much of the dialogue was lost to me because the speaker was off camera or because lips were too distant or didn't move enough for my necessary lip reading to catch what was going on. If I had better hearing, I probably would have had a better understanding to the film and would not have reached my judgement that there were only a very few characters in the film that I could have respected. My fault, my problem. The film did illustrate much of the reality that I have observed in this kind of situation, and if you can stand the reality, you should watch this film.

Boring presentation for what otherwise could have been a very good film.

FAB!

Loved it!

Powerful.

LOVED it.
