Based on a true story, this film follows 16-year-old Agnes "Apple" Bailey (Vanessa Hudgens). Pregnant and abused by her drug-addicted mother (Rosario Dawson), Apple runs off to her wealthy father (Brendan Fraser), whom she's never met. Rejected, she's taken to a teen shelter run by Kathy (Ann Dowd), who heals Apple's inner wounds with love, family and lots of God. Hudgens completely transforms herself, with ragged hair, bad makeup and infected-looking piercings, but the film can't match her intensity. Krauss knows Gimme Shelter's success depends on the attendance of church groups, and he can only show so much sadness before pulling back to let Jesus work his magic.
