Ellen Page (Inception) leads this Netflix drama as a young woman in poverty who takes a baby from a troubled mother. From Sian Heder, longtime writer for Orange is the New Black. Available from July 29, 2016.

Young vagabond Lu (Page) lives in a van and is fiercely independent in her hand-to-mouth existence. When a chance encounter incites her to impulsively “rescue” a baby from a negligent mother, Lu, at a loss for what to do, turns to the only responsible adult she knows: Margo (Allison Janney, The Way, Way Back), who mistakenly believes she’s the child’s grandmother.

Page is simply superb in a complex role that perfectly plays to her gift for balancing deadpan comedy with surprisingly deep emotional reserves.

Yes, the story has the makings of a Lifetime movie; what grounds it are the terrific performances and Heder's rich direction and screenplay.

There's so much to root for here it's painful to concede there's some hideously on-the-nose, spell-out-the-motivation-in-capital-letters writing that lowers the tone.
