SherryBaby (2006)

Netflix DVD on 8/20/11
This was nominated for a Golden Globe a few years ago and I never got around to watching it at the time. It's decent, and Maggie Gyllenhaal is very convincing as a struggling former addict, but the characters never manage to fully get my sympathy. The brother and his wife who have been raising Sherry's daughter just come off as selfish in their desire to keep her, not caring parental figures. Sherry doesn't garner any sympathy when she trades sexual favors to get what she wants. The only one I do feel bad for is the poor, confused kid.
My Netflix rating:
3 stars

New Movies in Year Three: 76
