Anywhere But Here

* * 1/2*

Wayne Wang directs this drama about a 14-year old girl (Natalie Portman) and her mother (Susan Sarandon) who move from the midwest to LA. Based on Mona Simpson's novel. Shawn Hatosy also stars as Portman's cousin. Hart Bochner will play an orthodontist who gets involved with Sarandon. Ashley Johnson, and Bonnie Bedelia also star.

Capsule Review: Good turns by Sarandon and Portman bolster this mother-daughter drama. Touching, yet slightly predictable, Anywhere But Here is an entertaining, yet not overly memorable film.

[PG-13 - sex-related material] (Fox 2000)
