Perfect Sisters stars Abigail Breslin and Georgie Henley as two sisters that are not being treated very well by their mom, Mira Sovino, because she is a drunk and she has a boyfriend that is both violent and lecherous. The girls ahve been close since they were both young. the movie is based on true story, called “The Bathtub Girls”, it is very well acted, the girls are both very good actresses, and you feel sympathetic toward them, and because it is based on a true story, you know that things will not end well for the mother. The interesting thing for me, is that the two girls actually try to get some help, but no one is really willing to help them, so they feel that the only thing they can do is to get rid of mom, which they do. But they do it in typical stupid kid fashion, by involving a couple of their friends, who do keep their mouths shut, but the girls feel guilty enough that they start confessing, and acting out like their mom did. It is a well done movie that probably raises more questions than it answers, 3.5 stars
