Verdict on Adopting Audrey

Adopting Audrey is a drama that follows a woman who is struggling to find her place in the world. She gets no enjoyment out of everyday things and has become incredibly lonely. After she discovers adult adoption, she moves in with a family and gets to learn more about life.

This is loosely based on a real story and shows that life can become difficult if you are unsure of where to go next. It has a wonderful performance from Jena Malone as she brings a grounded, yet lost figure to life. Deep down this movie has a big meaning, that you can figure life out, just take your own time to do so and people will be there to support you.
