Plot Summary
For as long as Heidi can remember, her mentally challenged mother has had only 22 words in her vocabulary, and the precocious 12 year-old doesn't have a problem with that. Bernadette, their loving neighbor, provides them a bubble of love and protection. Then, a new word pops out of Mama's mouth - the mysterious soof - and it changes everything. Heidi is propelled on a solo cross-country journey of discovery and loss, truth and identity.

  • While there might be a movie in this material, the muted performances, muffled emotions and simple lack of dramatic sparks or surprises wastes the talents of one and all. show more

  • The strong cast, including John Heard, Dash Mihok, Jacinda Barrett and Cloris Leachman, sells the warm, at times cloying material with earnest conviction. show more

  • So B. It aims for an inclusive message. But Mama’s artificiality makes it hard to buy the movie’s themes of acceptance. show more
