It's smartly directed by Jake "son of Ridley" Scott, and the supporting cast, including Christina Hendricks as Debra's wiser older sister, are equally robust.

Miller's finely tuned performance manages to be tough and sparky and just world-weary enough, without slipping into one-size-fits-all inspirational "survivor" cliche.

American Woman seems to be nudging its way above decent almost from the start, and just keeps nudging: while the inspiration to put it over the top is never quite there, the consistent effort is gratifying.

American Woman is a film with a lived-in authentic feel. And Miller plays it beautifully with psychological depth and not a jot of actorly condescension.
