Single suburban mother Susan Carpenter works as a waitress at a diner, alongside feisty family friend Sheila. Her younger son Peter is a playful 8-year-old. Taking care of everyone and everything in his own unique way is Susan’s older son Henry, age 11. Protector to his adoring younger brother and tireless supporter of his often self-doubting mother – and, through investments, of the family as a whole – Henry blazes through the days like a comet. Susan discovers that the family next door, which includes Henry’s kind classmate Christina, has a dangerous secret – and that Henry has devised a surprising plan to help. As his brainstormed rescue plan for Christina takes shape in thrilling ways, Susan finds herself at the center of it.
Plot: Susan, a single mother of two, works as a waitress in a small town. Her son, Henry, is an 11-year-old genius who not only manages the family finances but acts as emotional support for his mother and younger brother. When Henry discovers that the girl next door has a terrible secret, he implores Susan to take matters into her own hands.

Excellent Night at the Movies
I had no idea what this movie was about, but decided to go because the critics panned it but it got good reviews from viewers. This is a wonderful story about some wonderful people in a very not so normal, but loving family. And first and foremost, it is a STORY!!!! So you can suspend your feelings of, “it just does not seem real to me”! It is beautifully filmed; wonderful acting and character development! Your feelings will run the gamut, but that is what excellent storytelling is all about. Do yourself a favor and go see this movie!
Spock would have said: So very illogical!
The first half of this film was okay. All actors fine except for Maddie playing Christina.Almost no dialogue or acting required…just look sullen, sullen and more sullen.
The second half of the movie has more holes then Swiss cheese. It was unbearable to watch utter nonsensical scene after scene.
School principal says nothing more can be done to help Christina regarding the suspected abuse by her step dad. Yet, when she dances at the talent show the principal seeing tears of sadness/joy??? decides to call the authorities, not the next morning, but supposedly that night. Christina has never confirmed to anyone that she’s being abused. Views from Henry’s house never show actual abuse, just sinister lighting. In fact, there is no frame in the film that shows Christina alone with her step dad inside the house. The thought of assassination where Christina has never uttered a word confirming it and neither Henry or Susan witnessed it was too far fetched. Much better would have been a Henry plan to prove his guilt and see him imprisoned forever.
Police cars, lights glaring rush to Glen’s home after the Principal supposedly made a phone call. Since Christina never confirmed step dad’s abuse the principal could say only that Christina, at the show, looked sad. This is somehow sufficient for an night time arrest warrant sending flashing police cars to make an arrest. Nonsensical.
In the end, Henry’s ‘plan’ to save Christina is trashed by mom Susan. Then the worst of scenes. Women, unarmed, tells dangerous armed felon to look at her as she tells him: I’m the woman who will put you away forever if it’s the last thing I ever do. Middle of woods, no witnesses… you think Glen might take her out to avoid a forever prison sentence? Naw, he just walks away, so that Henry’s plan is a total bust.
If mom Susan had shot Glen there was no time for her to deal with a body, she had four minutes to get back to the show. Forensics would know the shot came from the tree house leading back to Susan. The gun store owner knows Susan’s face.
Henry’s famed red book, with all kinds of Henry’s writings and sketches plus his ‘plan’ is tossed by Susan into the fireplace. No need to cut out the ‘plan’ pages and save Henry’s precious writings/sketches.
Henry was such a ‘brain’ it is not possible he would’ve come up with a simple assassination plan instead of an exotic high tech plan to bug Glen’s home with audio/video to easily gather evidence to put him away.
For those of us who watch forensic files Henry’s plan would have insured Susan’s tenure in the state pen.
On the plus side Henry’s plan for mom Susan to become Christine’s guardian did work but only after the Principal not mom Susan intervened.
