A pair of sisters who have run away from foster care kidnap a clerk at a baby store thinking she can help with the older girl’s pregnancy. In her third film, 11-year-old Scarlett Johansson nearly steals the show as the younger sister, but Mary Kay Place gives her a run for her money as the lonely clerk who finds something that she didn’t know she needed in the runaways.
