The Girl - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Struggling with the loss of her child to Social Services, Ashley Colton, a ragged beauty in her twenties, has survived a series of minimum wage jobs, trying to prove that she is fit to be a mother to regain custody of her son. When a visit from her father, a truck driver living in Mexico, brings Ashley to Nuevo Laredo, she discovers that he is smuggling immigrants across the border. Seeing a way out of the quicksand of her south Texas life, Ashley is lured into the role of a coyote. Her plan goes awry, and Ashley finds herself stranded with a young girl whose life is suddenly in her hands.

MOVIE REVIEW

You lose her mom, you better take care of her daughter. Abbie Cornish stars in The Girl, where she plays a disgruntled mother who resorts to smuggling Mexicans across the border to make ends meet. Too bad for her, she sucks at just about everything, especially smuggling Mexicans across the border to make ends meet. On her first job, she manages to lose a woman in a river crossing - forcing her to take care of the woman's daughter for a time. At least she speaks español, so that's one positive.
