I can't give this movie more than two stars. I think Angie Harmon did a great job, as well as the other actors, but there's too many problems that can't be ignored. Although it was never hinted at, I suspect the mother liked the attention she got when he son drowned in the lake. Add that to the trauma of losing her son, I think that's why she became the way she was. Now onto the problems. One is the quality of the movie. It was grainy/ snowy in certain scenes. It's not like this movie was made in the 90s so there's no excuse for the bad quality of the movie. And it's not my internet or phone because everything else looks great. The plot itself makes no damn sense at all. Definitely Munchausen by Proxy except it doesn't make sense at how it's portrayed. She would go to hospitals, clinics etc so she would get the attention she seeks. A great example of Munchausen by proxy is the Gypsy Rose case. THAT is what this disorder really looks like. The writer should have researched it before writing about something they obviously have no clue what it's about. Another problem is the ending. It just ends with Ethan, Abby, and Ben in an ambulance. Audiences like a solid conclusion. So what happens with Abby and Ethan? Why is the foster dad being arrested? Is it because of the child abuse he'll allowed to happen or is it because of what happens to the foster mother? That's never answered. How many foster kids did they have after their son died? Because if their son died a year earlier than they had A LOT of foster kids in such a short amount of time that it would have raised red flags that something isn't right. ESPECIALLY if the kids are dying. If the writing was stronger this could have been a really good movie but they chose the lazy route assuming the audience is too stupid to notice. Judging by the good reviews.... I guess they were right. I won't watch it again, and I definitely wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone.
