Storyline

Emily has been living in a foster home ever since her father was institutionalized after her mother's death. Still, she keeps in touch with him through the birthday cards he sends her every year. As Emily starts at a new school, she catches the attention of her shy classmate Arden. When her father doesn't send a birthday card on her 16th birthday, Emily decides to take matters into her own hands. Enlisting Arden's help, she runs away, and the pair set out on a road trip to break her father out of the psych ward. As their journey progresses, Emily and Arden must depend on each other as they learn about life, love, loss, and letting go. Written by Monument Releasing

I don't know why I even gave it a 2
1 April 2018 | by pufflesmokeSee all my reviews

This movie is a pile of attemptedly profound and meaningful statements that feel like they should culminate to create a big heartfelt message but actually just come down as a heap of confusingly pseudo-poetic tripe. There are so many plot holes in this movie, from Emily's endless wardrobe while on the run with a small bag to the fact that her foster parents don't seem to call the social workers and seek to find her, despite Emily's claims that they will. That's just forgotten. The narration on Evanna lynch's Part is excessively wordy without meaning anything, and her acting is even worse. She quite possibly ruins the movie with it, however I'm not sure there is much good outside that. Why did this movie win any awards?
