Genre : Comedy Drama Starring : Claire Danes, James Marsden, Sarah Bolger Imdb Rating : 5.7 Subtitle Available : Indonesia | English
Lucy (Bolger) is a self-confessed tomboy who gets on well with her father (Marsden) but is frequently separated from him for months on end when he works in Canada. Her relationship with her mother (Danes) is easy-going provided she keeps the house tidy. Lucy is even allowed to drive her mother’s car, even as she is too young to apply for a license.
When Lucy turns 16, she develops a type of friends-with-benefits relationship with her best friend Kenny. She also ditches her tomboy image, embraces make-up, and grows out her hair. She starts to realize that her parents’ marriage is not as solid as she had imagined. She realizes that her father’s extended stays abroad are not typical of other fathers, and that her mother does not pine for her father as much as she does herself. Her allegiance to her father is tested when she discovers that her mother is having an affair with a colleague.
When Kenny moves away, Lucy feels lonely, and starts having sex as a distraction. She also begins to realize that there is more to her father’s extended stays in Canada than she had previously imagined
