        Dern is great. However, the movie attempts to be a straightforward character study but that is undermined by it's consistent tone problems.

        Rambling Rose is the definitive Laura Dern performance. I particularly like mother-daughter performances as there is often additional sizzle to fictional work and Dern and Diane Ladd don't disappoint.

        Was not expecting to enjoy this at all but it's a very well acted film, that has one or two suprising scenes. 7/10
