Her concerned mother and father reach out to an educational consultant, who advises them to send Augusta to a strict wilderness camp for troubled teens.

The characters seemed so detached from reality to make any real statement about the American condition. And the subplot of finding the aging Nazi had such an odd undertone it never really took off. Sean Penn's character was so whiny and uninteresting.

I enjoyed it all the way up until the end where I expected some sort of resolution, or cute payoff, or some explanation why the baby had wings...but nothing! Very disappointed in something that had such great performances and so much promise.
