Adult and Teen Friday Studio Program
This film chronicles the epic battle that several American mothers are waging on behalf of their middle-school daughters, victims of sex trafficking on Backpage.com, the classified advertising website that for years was part of the iconic Village Voice. Reminiscent of Erin Brockovich and Karen Silkwood, these mothers have stood up on behalf of thousands of other mothers, fighting back and refusing to take no for an answer.
In recognition of your support as a member of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, you are invited to Celebrate the Season at a family-friendly gathering featuring sweet treats, art activities, holiday fun, and more!
With cocoa in hand, stroll through the beautiful holiday lights surrounding the Museum grounds.

“This is a superb film.” David Edelstein, New York Magazine. Fourteen-year-old Joe is the only child of a housewife (Carey Mulligan) and a golf pro (Jake Gyllenhaal) in a small town in 1960s Montana. When the father loses his job, he joins the firefighters battling an uncontrolled forest fire raging close to the Canadian border. His wife and son are left to fend for themselves. Suddenly forced into the role of an adult, Joe witnesses his mother’s struggle as she tries to keep her head above water.
