My Little Girl
15 July 2009 | by edwardp-burnsSee all my reviews

This movie had a positive effect on me. First professionally, my career choice is social work. Second, the willingness to follow one own's path. The Masterson character received quite an education. The story was one part, the clashing of cultures. The world of troubled youths is a very different world then the world of the affluent. I give the Masterson character credit for realizing the limits of affluence and attempts to step out of this world. I also give credit to the Grandmother who seemed to realize and support the Masterson character's attempts to grow. The social workers in this movie were very realistic. This is a tough age to be if one is socially conscious, no matter the circumstances.
