Not So Perfect

Toronto teenager Abigail Breslin (as Sandra Anderson) and her year-younger sister Georgie Henley (as Elizabeth "Beth" Anderson) are also best friends. They have a big problem in common, too, alcoholic mother Mira Sorvino (as Linda). Not only does she drink like a fish, Ms. Sorvino has a succession of bad boyfriends. The girls can't keep track of them all. From the evidence we see in this story, it's safe to presume most of the men liked to smack Sorvino around and attempt sex with her daughters. There is also a neglected little brother. Yes, this is a wildly dysfunctional family. Speaking four different languages, including one they created for themselves, Ms. Breslin and Ms. Henley are easily smart enough to generate some good problem-solving strategies...

Well, maybe not...

This is another "based on a true story" movie which seems to suffer under the influence. It's sometimes difficult to believe the characters would act like this, in real life. There should be enough material on screen to make the story more believable. Director Stan Brooks does best in conveying the closeness of the "Perfect Sisters". There is a strong background-setting opening and the pair are often positioned in sync. Henley certainly wins the acting honors. The most believable of the three leading women, she effectively applies Gothic make-up to hide her pain. Older sister Breslin's adoption of her mother's habits may be more common, but's it's less convincing. Sorvino's mother portrayal is too poorly defined and the actress' attempted characterization is wasted...

Of the supporting men, Jeff C. Ballard (as Justin) is the stand-out, due to his screen time and distracting eye make-up. While Henley's vampire-look helped us understand her character, Mr. Ballard's mascara runs the imagination rampant. Abusive lawyer James Russo (as Steve Bowman) is a standard heel. Instead of wildly shaking the camera, Mr. Brooks and photographer Stephanie Weber-Biron keep it smooth. During rough spots, like the boozy card game and a bathtub scene, they skillfully move around the characters. While the minor strengths are appreciated, the story responds by not adequately involving the viewer.

**** Perfect Sisters (4/8/2014) Stan Brooks ~ Abigail Breslin, Georgie Henley, Mira Sorvino, Jeff C. Ballard

worth seeing due based on true events

If it wasn't based on true events this could be a pure rip-off of Heavenly Creatures (1994) another flick based on true events.

Here we have two sisters fed up with their mother being drunk whole the time and bringing in the wrong guys only to have sex before the eyes of their daughters due being drunk, always having abusive relationships . Slowly the sisters and their friends are making a simple plan to kill her. Doing so they almost got away with it wasn't it for the fact that one of the sisters starts to tell everybody she killed her mother.

Like in Heavenly Creatures we also have dream sequences so comparing both flicks is easy. But Perfect Sisters shows that it clearly was a TV flick where as Heavenly Creatures was more brutal and performances were better.

It isn't all that bad and I watched it with my teen daughter (15 just as the sisters aged 14 and 15) who never turned her face away by which I mean, there's no horror in it or even any creepy moments. Even when they are killing the mother it's all done without terror.

Due being based on a true story it's worth picking up just to see how people can influence each other when they are weak. Not a perfect flick but indeed perfect sisters...

Sad true story. Excellent acting, good movie.

Excellent acting. The Mother played one of the best drunks/druggies that I've seen. I thought the acting by everyone was impressive for Lifetime. Sad, true story. I can not ever imagine doing anything harmful to my Mother even if she was a drunk and had no idea how to hold a family together and if she couldn't hold down a job. Bringing losers around would be a big problem, but still. We watch hundreds of movies in a few months times. I read a great deal of reviews and also contribute to them. I know a lot of people read the reviews and only purchase rent or buy movies based on the ratings. I am very surprised that this Lifetime movie was not rated much higher. Probably one of the better Lifetime shows
