bastard out of carolina

Be warned: this harrowing tale of childhood abuse and poverty in the Southern US may gnaw away at your restful dreams. Jena Malone puts in a tragic turn as the fragile Bone who suffers at the hands of her unstable stepfather while mom’s love wavers between dad and daughter. Luckily, later in the pic, a strong woman, happy with her unmarried life and one that leaves ample time for fishing, offers a teensy glimmer of hope for Bone’s future. Overall, hard to like, but impossible to dismiss. [us, 1996]
