COMING UP ROSES is a haunting coming-of-age story about a mother-daughter forced to choose between reality and fantasy, their love for each other and survival.(c) Dada Films
There's nothing here to catch our eye, or our interest - just AfterSchool Special plot twists and family battles-and-bonding, spiced up with secrets and revelations that aren't nearly as unexpected, or revealing, as the filmmakers might hope.
A modest drama most notable for its heartfelt performances.
Director and co-screenwriter Lisa Albright uses Peters to lend some needed verve to a pretty standard, down-market milieu.
After a hoot of an entrance by Bernadette Peters showboating a tune from the rafters at a church wedding, Coming Up Roses takes a nosedive into despair and stays there.
This first feature from Ms. Albright does not augur a brilliant future.
An escalating melodrama in which drug deals, suicide attempts and sexual predation evoke playtime fabrication rather than world-weary experience.
