Kate Winslet is captivating to watch in her portrayal of the hippy mother seeking some greater understanding of her life. Her daughters take the roll of the leader in the family often giving direction and selecting a friend for their mother who eventually fills the place in their lives as a surrogate father.

IMG_4816Based on the novel of the same name written by Ester Freud, who is the daughter of British painter Lucian Freud and great grand daughter of Sigmund Freud, it depicts her unorthodox childhood in morocco with her mother and older sister. The movie is neither Hideous nor kinky, but defiantly a must watch!
