Trucker (James Mottern, 2008). I’m a sucker for a family melodrama, and this one stayed just on the lean side of schmaltz. Except for the unprepossessing (is that the euphemism for ugly?) kid, it’s thumbs up.

I didn’t learn anything about driving a truck, but on the plus side, the film did not draw any attention to the fact that this trucker was a woman; it took it for granted.

A trucker, leading a life free of depth and on the way to nowhere, is forced to make a decision about her aggressive loner 11-year-old son whom she openly deserted ten years previously.
