Eva Mendes and Matthew Modine star in the Girl in Progress trailer
I was just thinking that it has been a while since we’ve had a movie about an immature mother/father/guardian that has to learn valuable life lessons from their overly mature child. If you’ve been clamoring for such a tale and don’t want to rent one of the dozen or so movies that have already been made on the subject, then have no fear, GIRL IN PROGRESS is here. The first trailer for the film has arrived and it’s probably exactly what you think it is. Eva Mendes is the young, hip mother that refuses to grow up and therefore her daughter has to take on responsibilities she’s not ready for. That, of course, leads to bad decisions and then some bonding towards the end.
Along with Mendes, the film stars Matthew Modine, Patricia Arquette and newcomer Cierra Ramirez. GIRL IN PROGRESS is directed by Patricia Riggen and will hit theaters on April 27th, 2012.
