Angie, an impoverished single mother with a history of bad decisions, is determined to do better for her son. Discovering that the house she shares with her mother, a crude woman with a poor track record of her own, is being condemned, Angie begins a frantic search for a new home. When all other options fail, she fixates on solving the problem by confronting the one person she feels owes her: the man who sexually abused her as a child.
A haunting story about an uncomfortable topic, Beauty Mark fearlessly portrays the effects of sexual abuse. While some may question her methods of salvation, the raw and unflinching performance of Auden Thornton as Angie engenders a deep sense of compassion, even as she goes down a questionable path. Ultimately what is so refreshing and uplifting about Beauty Mark, is Angie's choice to use the trauma and pain of her past to save someone else. — Monique Ray
