White Oleander

Based on the book by Janet Fitch, White Oleander traces Astrid's remarkable journey to independence. Alison Lohman portrays Astrid, struggling to get a foothold in life as she copes with her manipulative mother (Michelle Pfeiffer) and with the challneges of living in a succession of foster homes (Robin Wright Penn and Renee Zellwegger play two of the foster mothers). With Noah Wylie, Patrick Fugit, Billy Connelly, and Cole Hauser, this movie bewitches- and haunts- from beginning to end.
