HASH(0xa76fec3c) out of 5 stars Pretty depressing but very much worth watching & I highly recommend. If you like What Maisie Knew you will love this. I say B+ Sept. 7 2013
By Tony Heck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"If memory is malleable then the future is too." Lucy is a sixteen year old girl who is too smart for her own good. She spends her free time learning how to cook and hanging out with her friend Kenny. Her mother (Danes) and father (Marsden) had her when they were young and not ready for that responsibility. Now with her dad gone all but 4 times a year and her mom acting like a kid herself Lucy is left to discover life for herself. This is a movie that again proves my point that a movie can be entertaining and worth watching involving great acting rather then special effects. This is a movie along the line of What Maisie Knew only involving an older child rather then a 6 year old. Parents that should not have been allowed to have children and a child who is more mature then the parents. You really root for Lucy the entire time and by the time the end come you feel extremely sorry for her as well as relief. That is a hard combination to achieve but that's what great writing and acting does. Overall, a great movie that is pretty depressing but I recommend this. I give it a B+.

HASH(0xa76ff060) out of 5 stars When your life goes down the ****er, serve Eggs Hell Dec 23 2013
By c. j. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is a film based on a book by the same name. I haven't read the book before but the film stars Sarah Bolger, Claire Danes, James Marsden and Thomas Mann. Bolger plays Lucy, a 16 year old high school girl who is far too young to be experiencing the level of maturity forced upon her by her parents, Chuck and Lainee (respectively played by Marsden and Danes.) Chuck and Lainee had Lucy when they were about the same age as she is now and both of them were orphaned at early ages. Chuck grew up in a home for boys run by what must have been Hitler's relatives while Lainee lost her parents to a tragic car accident. The two of them found and fell in love, each other's only comfort and understanding then. But that was then and now it's sixteen years later and Chuck takes every opportunity to stay away from his family by working out of state, and is only home three weeks out of the year. And lately, they are not happy times with Lainee, who can't wait for Chuck and his morbidly religious moralistic spewings as parental warnings for their daughter and her friends to hit the road back to where he came from so that she can sneak off to her secret job in an advertising corporation, where she has an affair with two separate co-workers, periodically. And all the while Lucy is home cooking dinners she has learned to whip up by watching her favorite chef every evening on a cooking channel, pulling off A's in class, trying to keep Mr. Popular's mitts off of her, planning her future, coming up with new and unique ways in which to get rid of the bully of her bestfriend/sort-of-boyfriend (Thomas Mann) and oh yeah, survive her parents immature b. s. Whew! Talk about a mouth full. Lucy's only solace is (Mann) Kenny, an odd ball geek with a heart of gold. He is Lucy's only link to survival and when even that is taken away, she begins to spin out of control and something horrible happens to her which she can't even talk to Kenny about. And then her parents break up and she finds herself alone. And even then, she doesn't give up.

I'm a big Claire Danes fan and a s always she did a wonderful job in this move. I was very impressed with Sarah Bolger. This is the first film I've seen her in and I think she is a very talented young actress with a great future in film.

HASH(0xa76fee64) out of 5 stars Real... enjoyment. Dec 30 2013
By T. A. Tompkins - Published on Amazon.com
This movie would be an excellent resource for beginning a discussion of "coming of age" topics between adults and teens. The actors deliver authentic portrayals in situations which ignited a lot of symbolic resonance for me. In several places I choose to stop watching (thanks to DVD and streaming) because the emotions that came up were quite intense. On whole it was a very worthwhile way to spend a few hours. I'm sure I will watch it again sometime.

This movie was very true to life and that is the sad part. It had a semi-happy ending. The struggles of the young girl made her stronger and gave her the ability to survive.
