In very generalized terms i would say people watch movies to escape reality. For this reason alone I don't think this movie is for everyone. It is still a movie and I am sure for those in real life situations akin to the actors on the screen the movie may be inaccurate in many ways, but i am sure the movie brings a lot of the struggles of life to the forefront in a way that people might imagine and soften to others around them. The film's subject matter may be ugly, but I feel it also shows the little moments that can be nice. Plus the acting is good.
Coming into this movie I really didn't know what to expect. Saw the trailer and thought it looked worth a watch. After seeing it I gotta say the movie was OK. Really didn't have any kind of point to it besides a young girl growing up with a mom who has issues of her own. Basically shows all the adventures and situations a young kid goes through growing up with a somewhat rough life. The ending will have you like "really!"
This film, starring Willem Dafoe, is about the maintenance manager at a hotel near Disney World, and the people he deals with on a daily basis. It's definitely a film that requires a bit of attention, and the ending will surprise you.
