Critic's Review Heading

Rex Reed Full Review
Excellent American Woman is elevated beyond its woes by Miller's galvanizing, astonishing and multi-dimensional centerpiece development of character. You can't take your eyes off her because she has the extraordinary pace and timing to make you feel what she's doing while she's doing it, and you can't wait for her to do more.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average American Woman is elevated by its performances, especially Sienna Miller's as Deb. There's a degree of simplistic wish-fulfillment in the conclusion of the Ray storyline, and another sudden fast-forward sees the film skipping over the potential fallout and lasting effects of abuse.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In the cluttered bedroom of her hand-me-down home in rural Pennsylvania, 31-year-old single mom and grocery store cashier Deb Callahan (Sienna Miller) squeezes into a skin-tight dress and spackles on makeup in prep for a late-night hookup. Leaving her moody teenage daughter Bridget (Sky Ferreira) and her infant grandson Jesse behind, Deb heads out to a drab motel for a disappointing tryst with a married man. Despite well-intentioned criticism about her reckless lifestyle choices from her older sister Kath (Christina Hendricks) and her widowed mother Peggy (Amy Madigan), Deb remains stubbornly immature. That is, until Bridget mysteriously goes missing one night.

When the local police and a neighborhood search party fail to turn up a single clue, Deb and her family are forced to confront an unimaginable truth: Bridget may be gone for good. Shattered by the loss of her daughter, Deb's self-destructive coping method results in a bloody DUI crash on the side of the road. As time passes with no news of Bridget's whereabouts, Deb raises Jesse on her own while striving to better herself by enrolling in accounting classes. Following a physically abusive relationship with a violent boyfriend, Deb's life changes again when Kath's big-hearted husband Terry (Will Sasso) sets her up on a date with his gentle co-worker Chris (Aaron Paul). After a mere six weeks of dating, the two get married in a small but joyous backyard wedding ceremony.

Years later, Deb's world has substantially improved. She finds success managing an assisted living facility, and her cozy domestic life with Chris and Jesse is a far cry from the wild instability of her past. Even her previously fraught relationships with her sister and mother seem noticeably healthier. But when personal challenges and private betrayals threaten the delicate progress she's made, Deb is forced once again to begin anew.
