Review:

Comic actress Goldie Hawn takes a serious turn in the affecting coming-of-age story CrissCross. Hawn (Shampoo, The First Wives Club) plays Tracy Cross, a single mother in Key West, Florida, who turns to stripping to support her son Chris (newcomer David Arnott). Meanwhile, Chris struggles to find himself, faced with a father (Keith Carradine, Choose Me, Nashville) who abandoned him, his mother's new boyfriend (Arliss Howard, Full Metal Jacket), and the temptation of selling drugs. The plot elements may sound melodramatic, but CrissCross keeps everything real with detailed performances, attention to the mundane (but telling) aspects of daily life, and a view of human nature that goes beyond the good-guy/bad-guy simplicity of most movies. CrissCross captures some of the ambiguity of human life, and that's an impressive feat. Also featuring brief appearances by character actors Steve Buscemi, Paul Calderon, and Anna Levine Thomson. --Bret Fetzer
