Aro Favourite Tumbleweeds


USA 1999, 97 minutes
Dir. Gavin O'Connor
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Girl-centric


Aroview: Exceptional mother-daughter drama that won British actress Janet McTeer an Oscar nomination for her dedicated portrait of a sassy, impetuous Southern Belle with bad judgement in men and a habitual need to move on when the going gets tough.

Settling into a familiar pattern via a blue-collar Californian beau (played by co-writer/director Gavin O'Connor), she inflames her precious/precarious relationship with her long-suffering 12-year-old (Kimberly J. Brown). The central dynamic is portrayed in subtle and convincing detail.
