This review is from: Yelling to the Sky (DVD)
In short the movie center around a young bircial misfit who comes from a dysfunctional household and decides to get a little gritty right right before her alchoholic dad begins to clean his act up. As far as characters: The mom seems like she was either sick or recovering from drugs in the beginning(staring into space, walking out the house in a trance leaving food on the stove),older- protective sister( who seems like she must've been more of a daddy's girl before the drinks him took over) runs away with boyfriend and returns with a baby. A neighbor who's also a hustler looks out for her and puts her on to the game. A big bully and her two henchmen, the two henchmen end up becoming the main characters sidekicks, a concerned school counselor with his own skeletons in the closet. I just want to say that her selling the drugs is not the main focus in this movie, the main thing seems to be her struggle with understanding who she really is inside and all the factors that have gotten her to this point. Just a few key points to get you interested, no spoilers but overall the movie was very good: Topics that have been covered in film but not in this way, and definitely not with such flawed yet lovable characters. There's so many layers. You feel like you know these people in the end and you want to see what's going to happen next in their lives. And hopefully we will, sequel maybe?...
