Girl in Progress (2012)
A Tale Of Acting Up. Acting Out. And Acting Your Age.
Girl in Progress movie synopsis: The drama follows the story of a 13-year old girl, Ansiedad (Cierra Ramirez), and her single mother Grace (Eva Mendes) who is most of the time away from home and from her daughter. Grace is too busy juggling between work, bills and a very married man (Matthew Modine), to give her daughter the attention she's crying for. After Ansiedad's English teacher introduces her students to classic coming-of-age stories, Ansiedad is inspired to skip a few years from her life and jump to a new start without mom. Ansiedad ask her loyal friend, Tavita (Raini Rodriguez), to help her to shortcut the adolescence. But as her erroneous plan unravels, Ansiedad and Grace have to learn that sometimes growing-up means acting your age.
