In America

Rating = B

The movie is well acted, especially by Samantha Morton and the girl who plays the elder daughter. And I am always attracted to stories with lots of strange characters living in the same apartment building. However, somehow, the main story line lacks the passion and depth it is obviously striving for. There were indications that this was a personal story for director Jim Sheridan, and that perhaps got in his way; I'll have to look up what the story is.
