Portable PortmanBy Daniel Carl from Kilmarnock, Scotland , 07 Apr 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Natalie Portman (aka Natalie Hershlag) really shines in her role as the daughter of an irresponsible mother, played by Susan Sarandon.
All the supporting cast have fairly weak roles and are utterly forgettable as the focus is on the maturation of the mother-daughter relationship which follows a fairly predictable path.
It was interesting watching Natalie playing out her role as the impoverished student attempting to get a university education as a year after the movie she did go to Harvard, although she certainly didn't have to rely on any sponsorship to afford it!
All in all a nice little movie to settle down to watch of an evening ...

Dramatic Movie With Excellent Pefomances.By filmsaremypassion (149 reviews) from Bexhill , 06 Apr 2011A mother and a daughter (Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman) move out of a small town heading straight to Beverly Hills for a new start. While Adele is keen to get away from it all, Ann wants to flee to start her life on her own. Soon they will go through the many troubles and affecting trails that is called life. It's a very dramatic film with excellent pefomances from Sarandon and especially Portman who recently won a Oscar. But it's not something I would see again and again though, the movie was quite slow with some scenes dragged at places and had a overlong running time. In all, Anywhere But Here, is worth seeing if you love mother/daughter relationship movies
One for Natalie Portman fansBy a customer from Chessington , 22 Mar 2011I rented this title as I am a Natalie Portman fan. It was quite a long film (around two hours) and it is not fast paced but it is watchable - perhaps a Sunday afternoon sort of film with some popcorn. Natalie is fab in it and really draws you in. A couple of laughs and some sad moments - one for the girls.
It's okBy a customer from Peterborough , 18 Jan 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI found this film to be ok, I wouldn't buy it or anything but admit this is my 2nd time of watching it, first being years ago. Sarandon is good as the quirky mother and her demeanour is similar to her role in the banger sisters. At times her character made me chuckle and at others cringe (saying I love you to a man after a first date) The moral of the story is good though I think they could have gone a little deeper into sarandons character not wanting to let go of her child rather than focusing on the daughters desire to go. It would have made a bit more meatier for me as it is lacking in something which is what stops it being memorable. Worth a watch if you've seen everything you desperately want to see and on to the 'what will do next' titles. Definitely a chick flick!
Not a brilliant movie but has some very good moments.By a customer from Bermondsey, London , 28 Jan 2008Not a brilliant movie but has some very good moments. Two great actresses don't turn a weak plot into an amazing movie but at least it doesn't sink...
it was okBy a customer from North Lincs, England , 08 Mar 2007The relationship between mother and daughter is the focus point, loved the character of Portman very well played. Portman being the adult in the relationship, it was fun at times!
