Rating: C- -- Stumbles through scenes without a consistent tone, hoping to shape something meaningful out of its display of misguided parenting. Janssen just doesn't have the vision to achieve it. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- [Its] downfall was ensured by a leading lady who will always be more credible chasing zombies than the American dream.

Rating: 1.5/4 -- Famke Janssen only rarely finds her way to the lowdown and lowlife world of the characters, and never and brings "Bobby" up to the level of pathos of "A Mother's Sacrifice" that she was aiming for in the first place. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Actress Famke Janssen wrote and directed this half-spiky, A-for-effort dramedy about a grifter mom struggling to raise her preteen son on the road. Full Review

Product Description:

A European con artist attempts to give her ten-year-old son a stable upbringing in Oklahoma, but finds her efforts leading to disaster when her shady past finally catches up with her. Thanks to her talent for grifting, Olive (Milla Jovovich) has never stayed in one place for very long. But after her son Bobby (Spencer List) is born, she attempts to settle down in Oklahoma. Unfortunately, when Bobby's erratic behavior catches the attention of their conservative neighbors, Olive's carefully constructed façade begins to crack. Later, after an accident involving Bobby and prominent local businessman Kent (Bill Pullman), the truth about Olive's past finally comes out, forcing her to make the most difficult decision of her entire life.
