- White Oleander review by Steve
Moving character piece follows a teenage girl through foster care, and her efforts to understand and escape from her relationship with her imprisoned mother. Initial disquiet at the girl's brattish personality soon falls away under the sincerity and depth of Alison Lohman's wonderful central performance.
