Is a true story based on the best selling memoir by Jeannette Walls. It’s a tale of a deeply dysfunctional father, he’s a dreamer and a drunk, played by Woody Harrelson. He routinely uproots his family of four kids − running from the law and bill collectors. The mentally unstable mother, played by Naomie Watts, works on her paintings while her kids are starving.

The Bottom-Line? I did read the book and enjoyed it just as I’m sure many of you did. Unfortunately the film is very tough to watch, a child suffers horrifying burns in the first 15 minutes of movie as she tries to cook a hot dog because the mother is ignoring her hunger. The tone is flat. We are subjected to one heart-wrenching scene after another. And−it’s too long, over 2 hours.
