"You look at me, and you don't like what you see. But this is the price, Mother - the price of belonging to you."

Adapted from the Oprah-certified novel by Janet Fitch (unread by me), White Oleander is an emotional story of mother and daughter suffering tormented lives after their idyllic relationship is shattered. The title stems from a flower (called the white oleander, logically ... read more

life of disturbed girl, or rather the series of disturbances that occur to the poor girl, and the mother in jail who is giving her misleading, closed minded advice.
certainly not the story of my life, but the movie helps me see clearer through the eyes of those who lived through something similar.

A good movie

There was a time when Alison Lohman was one of the most promising actresses around. And then, back in 2009, she did a small part in the average ‘Gamer’, met her future husband Mark Neveldine who directed this flick, married the guy, got a kid, and since then she has never made any more movies. How sad is that? Lohman had her breakthrough in 2003 with ‘Matchstick Men’, one of the better mov... read more

Description: Astrid Magnussen is a 15 year old girl, living in California. Her mother, Ingrid, is a beautiful, free-spirited poet. Their life, though unusual, is satisfying until one day, a man named Barry Kolker (that her mother refers to at first as "The goat man") comes into their lives, and Ingrid falls madly in love with him, only to have her heart broken, and her life ruined. For revenge, Ingrid murders Barry with the deadly poison of her favourite flower: The White Oleander. She is sent to prison for life, and Astrid has to go through foster home after foster home. Throughout nearly a decade she experiences forbidden love, r ... (more)

A good movie

“There was a time when Alison Lohman was one of the most promising actresses around.

How sad is that? Lohman had her breakthrough in 2003 with ‘Matchstick Men’, one of the better movies directed by Ridley Scott, and a year before, she made this flick for which she delivered also a very strong performance. To be honest, the whole thing didn’t work perfectly, there were too many characters with not enough room for them all of them and some bits just didn’t work very well.

" Astrid Magnussen she starts as a delicate, innocent flower, and because of certain circumstances, she also goes through a lot of difficulty. but she ends up as a strong, and capable woman. the reason she's here: a girl threatens her, and she puts a knife to that girl's throat in her sleep, and tells her to back the eff off.
