House of Cards (movie)

Starring: Tommy Lee Jones, Kathleen Turner; Starring: Asha Menina; Director: Michael Lessac; Seasons: 1; MPAA Rating: PG-13

Kathleen Turner stridently overplays as a widowed architect too self-absorbed to see that her 6-year-old daughter (the spookily placid Asha Menina) is withdrawing into a quasi-autistic state. Touching on everything from virtual reality to Mayan mythology, Michael Lessac’s debut film is an earnest hash that wastes Tommy Lee Jones in a Noble Shrink role. Still, the unpredictability keeps you watching, and there’s one astounding visual effect involving a girl, a tree, and some finger paint.
