A Light Beneath Their Feet

Beth (Madison Davenport) is a senior at Evanston Township High whose mentally ill mother, Gloria (Taryn Manning), begins working at the school cafeteria at the very moment she stops taking her meds; the mother's gradual psychiatric decline forces Beth to evaluate whether she wants to attend nearby Northwestern or to leave her mother and attend UCLA. There's also a subplot about Beth's quasi-romance with brooding Jeremy (Carter Jenkins), but the pacing is so tepid and the script so trite that I barely cared. Director Valerie Weiss seems to think that bland indie-pop music on the soundtrack will do the trick, but I beg to differ. With Nora Dunn, who deserves better.
