Welcome to "Saturday Night at the Movies," a weekly feature in which I recommend an older title that you can go watch, right this very minute (provided you have Netflix Instant).
Sherry Swanson is just out of prison. A reformed heroin addict, she tries to go back to New Jersey and get her life together; specifically, she wants to be a good mother to her daughter Alexis, who has been raised by her brother Robert and sister-in-law Lynette. She talks tough and doesn’t suffer fools; she also knows how to get what she wants, as evidenced by the scene where she offers a placement agent oral sex in exchange for the job she wants. So, yeah, reformed but… still with some problems.
