Agonizing tale of a teen-age daughter (Alison Lohman) who is shuttled through a series of foster homes after her manipulative mother (Michelle Pfeiffer) is convicted of killing her lover. Directed by Peter Kominsky, fine performances bolster a harrowing coming-of-age drama exploring mother-daughter relationships, foster care and the role of art in coping with life experiences. Some violence including a suicide, one instance of rough language, brief substance abuse and implied sexual encounters. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
