Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

LoveTrue has many admirable and sensitive moments but its inherent disjointedness may lose all but the most devoted to tales of hardship and/or movies with unconventional storytelling. The filmmaker sees the drama in the way a young stripper loves to dance naked because it's the only area in her life where she feels she has power. It's is worth noting that The Boyd family singers are a talented lot and that Victory movingly sings songs she wrote about her religious faith.

Overall, this isn't a movie likely to appeal to most teens, and is only appropriate for the most mature ones.
