I like Maggie Gyllenhaal . She doesn't look like she's acting. She played the part of a woman released from prison to look after her baby girl
with the promise to keep of the drugs, which I thought she played this character very well

Sherry Swanson returns home to New Jersey after serving a three year prison sentence for theft to feed her drug habits. Wishing to go straight and be a proper mother to her young daughter, Sherry soon finds that it's going to be harder than she had initially hoped.

I honestly in no way want to be detrimental to the story on offer here, these are realistic problems that are handled adroitly and given care and attention by all involved. Whilst the lead performance from Maggie Gyllenhaal is right from the top draw, providing evidence that a fine actress is there if she wants to keep challenging herself. I just felt so flat after watching it, what has it achieved come the finale? What makes this stand out from the ream of similar pictures that have dealt with these kind of topics over the years? The answer, sadly, is nothing, perhaps we are at such a desensitised stage in cinema that sex for favours, drugs are hell and destitute ex cons fail to engage us? Even the curve ball thrown in here is very much expected, we feel angry and sickened, yes, but it ultimately comes off as being a shock tactic, no matter how real it is.

I fully understand that there are people who will appreciate the subtle slow burn of the piece, not every one likes the sledge hammer approach that we get in something like Requiem For A Dream for example. Yet in spite of its competent and poignant approach work, Sherrybaby falls way way short of making the impact that I'm sure director/writer Laurie Collyer would have aimed for, and that's as much a shame as Sherry Swanson's life is in the film. 6/10

This 2006 film is a good, powerful, shocking and extremely upsetting social drama. It certainly is something that you don't forget easily. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

The film begins when a young woman named Sherry Swanson (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is released from prison, meets her parole officer and starts looking for a job - and also tries to repair her relationship with her little daughter Alexis, who in her absence was raised by her brother and his wife. It is going to be a very bumpy ride, as Sherry is a former heroine addict - and the hardships she faces make her crave a moment of articificial bliss... She will get however some help from another former convict/addict, Dean Walker (Danny Trejo).

This is a very tough film, so tough that by moments I found it almost impossible to watch - especially in the most heartbreaking moments between Sherry and Alexis. I found this film more disturbing than most of the horrors I saw, even if finally not so much happens, other than day to day struggle of a broken, suffering human being.

There are some hints about Sherry's past and they make this film even tougher to watch... but I will say no more here.

The performance of Maggie Gyllenhaal is incredible and I am very surprised that she wasn't at least nominated for an Oscar. She very much carries this film on her shoulders - and other parts of her body, which she displays here a lot... After watching her in this film and in "Secretary" I am in awe of her talent and also of her courage, because she sure as hell doesn't pick easy roles... Danny Trejo gives also a great show in a rather atypical role. Giancarlo Esposito (of "Breaking Bad" fame) is also very good as a tough, no-nonsense parole officer.

No mistake, some people may find ‘Sherrybaby’ a little difficult to watch. But then it’s designed that way. It covers many difficult subjects, but manages not to be gratuitous in the process. Maggie Gyllenhaal plays the titular character, Sherry Swanson, who is released from prison and sets about trying to get her life back together and patch things up with the young daughter she lost.

However, Sherry has a few personal demons that won’t seem to let her go entirely straight. For a start, she’s promiscuous, craves hard drugs and isn’t slow to use her fists if she thinks she will. All in all this would normally make any ‘lead character’ pretty unlikable. However, I think most people will still root for Sherry. Because behind all that is a deeply troubled soul who, in her heart, is trying to do good, only her past just won’t seem to let her.

Plus Gyllenhaal plays the part with just enough balance to show Sherry’s bad and good qualities. She’s certainly no ‘traditional’ lead character, but her frailties are there for all to see – and don’t we all have some of those?

As the story progresses, we learn more about her past and, even though it’s not spelt out to us, can put together what made her that way.

Sherrybaby is worth seeing if you enjoy poignant film-making that really gets you to root for a damaged character and makes you want to see them succeed despite the odds.

I won’t go into too many plot points, as I don’t want to give too much away, but, as I said earlier, it does deal with numerous ‘hard-hitting’ topics. Just because you don’t see too much (graphically) doesn’t mean that it’s not lurking beneath the surface.

Gyllenhaal didn’t get an Oscar nod for her performance, but that doesn’t mean her portrayal wasn’t Oscar-worthy.
