Saturday Movies White Oleander

White Oleander

This is a quiet film about the relationship between a daughter, and her temperamental mother. And unlike some other family dramas where the mother and daughter have issues, here these issues are large and real. Because of her mother’s actions, Astrid is forced into foster care, and this film follows the stories that come from the people she meets. This film is a tearjerker and a thought provoker, asking questions about what makes us family, and what makes us individuals.
