One of the most powerful films I have ever seen about addiction, post-imprisonment and the struggle to rebuild one's life. I come late to films since I never never pay full price in a theater. This 2006 Sundance nominee presents an incredible performance by Maggie Gyllenheal. It is an honest portrayal of life after prison, rehabilitation, trying to find a job with a felony conviction, living in a group home and being under the watchful eye of a parloe officer. As if that is not enough of a struggle, Sherry attempts to build a relationship with the child she had to leave behind, and fights to rebuild relationships with the incredibly dysfunctional  family that led her to make bad choices at the tender age of sixteen. I give this five stars! -Alison Whiteman
