Bring up Bobby

imagesHaving fallen in love with Milla Jovovich when she appeared as Leeloo in the 1990’s classic sci fi film ‘The Fifth Element’, I was very keen to see her new film ‘Bringing up Bobby’. This film is about as far away from the aforementioned as is possible, it is the story of a Mother and her son, alone in the world, making ends meet by means not always in line with the law. Olive is a young single mother from Eastern Europe who finds herself living in Oklahoma more by luck than judgement? Her son Bobby played brilliantly by ‘Spencer List’ is a mischievous young chap who seems to be following his mothers behaviour a little too closely. All changes when Bobby is hit by a car whilst he is out on his skateboard. The film is an unusual tale, featuring people whose paths wouldn’t normally cross, and when they do they lead to life changing decisions.


We really enjoyed the film, it’s very funny in places and also very sad in others. Like life really. It’s directed by first time director Famke Janssen of ‘X-Men’ fame.

Having watched the film it also made me want to see ‘The Fifth Element’ again so I can fall in love with Leeloo all over again!
