Under [de Fontenay's] microscope, [the characters] don't feel like real people lost so much as white American trash test subjects.
If only Vladimir de Fontenay's film could match the sheer expressive power of its actress.
In Vladimir de Fontenay's Mobile Homes, Imogen Poots gives a performance of such multifaceted distinction that it might be hard to believe you're watching the same actress from frame to frame.
But while the story's a little shaky, Poots is outstanding; and de Fontenay has a terrific eye for the details of a drifter's life.
Driving a van and living in motels, these are low-level grifters whose pathetic American Dream is to become trailer trash. Their roads lead to nowhere. So too does this rootless, desolation-adoring film.
A squalid and deeply condescending portrait of what this outsider imagines lower-class Americana to be.
French director De Fontenay shines a light on the snakes-and-ladders reality of the American Dream for someone who's fallen through the cracks but still clings to the idea of new beginnings. Imogen Poots is excellent as the self-sabotaging young mum.
Give de Fontenay credit for taking the film road less traveled in a film world that tends to lean toward the safe path.
[writer/director Valdimir] de Fontenay's Mobile Homes is a deeply profound story whose characters offer no real answers and are given no true conclusions.
Without Poots, "Mobile Homes" would be a rough sit.
Another impressive, gritty indie turn by the formidable Imogen Poots.
[B]eneath the sometimes wandering and calculated narrative, there is a degree of honesty about the dynamics of these relationships.
