Burdened with this new responsibility and seeing the life of freedom she s fought for jeopardized, Diane steps reluctantly into her past and looks sidelong at a future that is not as simple or straightforward as she had once believed.

One night Monaghan returns from a trip to find her 11-year-old son (Jimmy Bennett) being dumped on her - the father is in hospital dying from cancer, the stepmother has to urgently go away on family business. Mother and son are strangers, but the boy needs comfort and security. Monaghan, clearly troubled and insecure from her own early life, struggles to reach out to her own son, who even at 11 is wilful and assertive, but also (and not surprisingly, given the strong bond with his dying father) desperately insecure and a loner.
The film unravels to chart the ebbs and flows of the relationship which develops between mother and son. The boy goes to a local school, makes a friend, and despite a lack of skill, joins the baseball team which eventually bolsters his self-confidence. Monaghan attempts to lead her trucker life as normal, despite the boy's presence, and the would-be boyfriend / neighbour attempts to become a father figure. The stepmother is happy to keep the boy, but what does the boy want?
The film does not pull its punches, or provide a saccharine ending. It is a love story but of an unconventional nature - people needing love, others unable to provide it.Read more ›
The film is very relevant and provides for a lot of commentary about parenting in America today, more importantly, it's entertaining and affecting without being slushy.
Anyone who has ever watched a movie knows that the son is going to start out being rebellious and trouble and eventually they will bond. Diane has a friend Runner (Nathan Fillion) who helps her along the way and wants to take their friendship of 4 years to the next level. Add some lame music, a few gut wrenching tense moments, a couple of heart warming tear-jerker scenes and you have the formula for a successful indie.
F-bomb, sex, no nudity, attempted rape. 3 1/2 stars
Sylvester Stallone film 'Over The Top'. On the surface it would appear
to be just that, but this is a much deeper, more subtle treatise on the
reunification of long-separated parent and child. There might have been
high melodrama and histrionics in a such a piece as this. Instead, we
are treated to a lean, spare script which spares the viewer from being
talked down to and repetitively spoon-fed information that can be
clearly seen quickly, and are presented with quickly but carefully and
accurately sketched characters who are exquisitely portrayed by a truly
talented cast. The pathos is definitely made more palatable by brief
spates of levity between the characters. Michelle Monaghan and Jimmy
Bennett, as the two central actors, are well matched.
