Boys on the Side

Boys on the Side
Three women strangers ride-share to the west coast but only get as far as the Arizona desert before one of them becomes ill. Personal histories are slowly learned, they evolve into a family, helping each other through troubles. Character-driven; have your hankies handy. Definitely rough language but it does ease up. The first 20-min explains the background of one of the women and is not indicative of the rest of the film. Starring Mary-Louise Parker, Whoopi Goldberg, Drew Barrymore. -- recommended by Charlotte K. - Bennett Martin Public Library
