Sherrybaby (2006)

Golden Globe-nominated Maggie Gyllenhaal stars in director Laurie Collyer's feature film debut about a young woman's struggle for normalcy. After being released from prison, Sherry Swanson (Gyllenhaal) returns to the realities of life, visiting with her parole officer, finding a job and being a mother to her 5-year-old daughter. But complications arise when Swanson learns that in her absence her brother and his wife have become surrogate parents.
My Two Cents: Gyllenhaal sells it, but is it worth buying? I need to care before I can sympathize, and this just didn't make me care. Tales of redemption should try to redeem their characters along the way.

NetFlix Rank: Didn't Like It
IMDB Rank: 6/10
