 is exceptional in this difficult family film. She plays the single-parent provider to six kids who packs the whole crew up and abandons city life in favour of something more suitable for her children. Finding themselves in a run-down house on the outskirts of a rural town somewhere in the midwest, the clan starts off with great hardship but eventually manages to pluck through.
