lovely and amazing

This indie story of mothers and daughters features Brenda Blethyn as the mother of three rather emotionally screwed up daughters. Katherine Keener plays the eldest daugher, and main character, a slightly lost 36 year old mother of one who makes chairs for mice and tries to sell them to ultra-hip LA stores, but ends up working at a photomart. The middle daughter is an aspiring actress with severe body image problems (possibly related to her mother’s determination to get liposuction). The youngest daughter is an adopted African-American child (the same age as Keener’s character’s daughter), who delights in faking drowning. At times funny, sweet, and also painful, this slightly off center but realistic film is definitely worth watching. [us, 2002]
