I know this film has gotten some bad reviews but I rather enjoyed. Sure, it rushes the story a little and it doesn’t go as in-depth as it should but when it comes to life it isn’t always a quick fix. The acting was phenomenal especially Virginia Madsen as Joy’s mother. I didn’t recognize her. It was a phenomenal performance. It’s a story of a woman who had the odds stacked against her and she over came them. It’s a story worth watching.
