"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.

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.

"Watched: February 26, 2020. Director: Peter Kosminsky Starring: Alison Lohman as Astrid Magnussen Michelle Pfeiffer as Ingrid Magnussen Robin Wright as Starr Renée Zellweger as Claire Richards I think all I have to say about this film is how great Michelle Pfeiffer was in this. Awfully beautiful at first look, with her bright blue eyes, long blond hair... She looked like an angel. BUT, her character was terribly self-centered, narcissistic and cruel. And, as a viewer, I sometimes felt"
