Oh, the joys of a dysfunctional mother-daughter relationship! Once being a young single mom myself, I’ve been on both sides of this world. Though, nothing like this story!
A neglected 13-year-old looks to a teen rite-of-passage as a way of changing her life, while living with a single mother who won’t grow up.
Directer: Patricia Riggen
Cast: Eva Mendes, Cierra Ramirez, Matthew Modine and Patricia Arquette
In theaters: April 27th 2012
Other than Hitch, I can’t think of a movie I’ve enjoyed Eva Mendes in, but she looks to be doing a great job with this character. I think I’ll be seeing this one.
What do you think? Are you planning on seeing Girl In Progress?
