Bringing Up Bobby
USA, 2011, 95 min.

Olivia is a con artist who will do anything for her 10-year-old son, Bobby, but giving him the best in life with no money coming in isn’t easy.

The mother (Milla Jovovich) and son (Spencer List) in BRINGING UP BOBBY find themselves in Oklahoma with hopes of building a better life outside of grifting. They blithely charm their way from one adventure to another until Olive’s criminal past finally catches up with her. Now, she must make the most difficult choice of her life: stay with her son and risk turning him into a criminal, or leave him to afford him a better opportunity.

Reminiscent of a modern-day Bonnie & Clyde crossed with THELMA & LOUISE and also starring and Bill Pullman and Marcia Cross, BRINGING UP BOBBY is the directorial debut of award-winning Dutch actress Famke Janssen (GOLDENEYE, the X-MEN films, Nip/Tuck).
