Movie Review: Hideous Kinky

Story: The screen adaptation of Esther Freud's (yes, a relative) autobiographical novel of a young English mother who drags her two young daughters to Morocco in 1972. The story, which becomes more of a travelogue, rambles all over the place and ends up as incomplete vignettes. The soundtrack groans on with Richie Havens tunes, America's Horse With No Name and of course Grace Slick also becomes too obvious.

Acting: Kate Winslet (sans Titanic) is good as are the two yound girls. Morocco is the star (if you have any desire to go there).
