This review is from: Free Ride [DVD] [2013] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The film opens in 1977 Ohio with Christie (Anna Paquin) playing a punching bag. In the next scene she grabs her two kids and they are off to Florida to live with her girlfriend Sandy (Drea de Matteo). The film initially builds sympathy for Christie as a battered mother. We then find out she meet Sandy as a dancer and now becomes a willing participant as a drug smuggler, attending parties, ignoring her kids, and all around setting a bad example, making us scratch our heads as to why we should feel empathy for such a person.

The film, is based on a true story, written and produced by the youngest daughter. The older moody daughter, MJ (Liana Liberato) looks like an Ann Paquin clone. The acting was top notch. The film message was to show that women will resort to a life of crime for their family when there are no other choices, i.e. government support programs, although we never see Christie try those options.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.
