My kind of movie
This isn't a film for a six year old boy (most likely), but I think it's one every parent should expose their teens on up to. I've spent time working in a women's shelter much like this one, and I felt the female characters in this story were relatable and realistic. I love how they bond despite their differences, and help each other out. The movie toggles between drama and humor, which is very much life (even in women's shelters) - I appreciated the lighter moments as a reprieve from the heavier ones. I got choked up at the end, when the main character empowers both herself and her son. Lots of good life lessons to discuss with the kids - female empowerment, diversity, the realities of domestic abuse, and the importance of friendship.
