"The Other Sister"

How did I miss this gem from 1999? It stars Juliette Lewis and Dianne Keaton and centers around a college-age girl who's mentally challenged and falls for a boy who is also mentally challenged. Her mother, Dianne Keaton, is an overly protective parent who tries to control her life to protect her. The young girl decides to move in with her boyfriend and fights tooth and nail with her mother to do so. It's very well done, however I've seen a couple movies that starred actual mentally challenged actors,  and the movies were way more provocative. A sweet movie nonetheless.
4 out of 5 stars
