Jeliza-Rose (Ferland), daughter of drug addicts, lives in a world of her imagination. When her mother (Jennifer Tilly) dies, her father (Bridges) takes her to a derelict rural homestead, where he also overdoses, leaving Jeliza-Rose to get involved with a witchlike woman (McTeer) and her lobotomised brother (Fletcher).
The dismal subject matter is beautifully shot, but Tideland merrily dances on the line between the merely unpleasant and the completely unwatchable.
