A real gem of a movie, young girl seeks to figure out her family story.
28 March 2018 | by TxMikeSee all my reviews

My wife and I watched this movie at home on DVD from our public library.

We find out the girl is 12, she lives in Reno with her mother and an agoraphobic woman in the adjacent apartment. How? Well when the girl was only 7 days old and the mother clearly distraught, the woman next door punched out a couple of panels that enabled them to have a door between the two living spaces. The mother, whose named seemed to be So B. It, was severely disabled, only spoke a few words, and certain events would make her get out of control. Clearly not able to be an adequate mother. How did all this come about? That in fact is the heart of the movie.

Heidi is the 12-yr-old girl, played by Talitha Bateman. She is very bright and capable and as she has become aware of her unusual situation in life started to ask questions about where she came from. Then the break comes when they find a old canister of exposed but undeveloped 35mm color film. The photos lead her to a small community in upstate New York and a home for disabled adults.

All the actors are good but the impact of movie depends on young Talitha Bateman and she carries it very well. Unusually well. This is a good movie of a good, heartwarming story.
