Storyline

Sometimes things are not always what they seem, especially in the small suburban town where the Carpenter family lives. Single suburban mother Susan Carpenter works as a waitress at a diner, alongside feisty family friend Sheila. Her younger son Peter is a playful 8-year-old. Taking care of everyone and everything in his own unique way is Susan's older son Henry, age 11. Protector to his adoring younger brother and tireless supporter of his often self-doubting mother - and, through investments, of the family as a whole - Henry blazes through the days like a comet. Susan discovers that the family next door, which includes Henry's kind classmate Christina, has a dangerous secret - and that Henry has devised a surprising plan to help. As his brainstormed rescue plan for Christina takes shape in thrilling ways, Susan finds herself at the center of it. Written by Focus Features

Desperate Propaganda
19 September 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In liberal HollyHood today, white males and cops are the everyday villains. Put the two together and you have created the ultimate HollyHood super villain!!! Well this one fits the narrative perfectly. Evil white male police commissioner abusing his daughter? Check. Portraying gun store owners as shady back room dealers? Check. Encouraging the murder of police officers? Check.
