Sherrybaby (2006)

Dir. Laurie Collyer
Starring:Maggie Gyllenhaal

This is the film that earned Gyllenhaal a Golden Globe nomination for best actress in a dramatic role. Which is totally irrelevant, because who gives a rip about the Golden Globes? Not me.

I do love me some Maggie, though. Here you have a nice indie picture that is thoughtfully written and avoids too many shortcuts where shortcuts could have been taken. Gyllenhaal’s Sherry is in a difficult situation and doesn’t come to solutions easily. I don’t know why, but I think the film is very believable, and this film is worth a look.

7/10 but if I didn’t love Gyllenhaal as much as I do, probably 6/10.
