Excellent small-town drama about two young women (, ) being raised by their single mother () in the midwest.  Balk’s perspective is the one the audience takes here, and watching her growing pains is a powerful and believable experience. Skye also shines as the older sister who is just dying for any opportunity to break out of her tiny surroundings and make her way into the big, wide world. Excellent acting, believable dialogue and real situations make for a memorable experience.
