Troubled 12-year-old Gilly Hopkins (Sophie Nélisse) has bounced from foster home to foster home, pointedly making those around her miserable as she fantasizes about a life with the mother (Julia Stiles) who abandoned her. While the tough love provided by her unflappable new foster mom (Kathy Bates) finally seems to be breaking through, what happens when her wealthy grandmother (Glenn Close) enters her life? Affecting adaptation of the Katherine Paterson YA favorite co-stars Octavia Spencer, Bill Cobbs. 99 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
