The December Challenge 2 - Film #47

It certainly isn't the neatness and most together drama I've ever seen, but the film has spunk and an energy rarely seen from such a dry subject. It is essentially a coming of age story about a boy whose mother is crazy and how her interactions with the world shape his perspective on life and love. It isn't the deepest well, it is only skin deep in my honest opinion, but the cast make the most of the borderline black comedy script and Connelly and Harris have great presence (which is always the case IMO).
