AMERICAN VENUS is a gripping psychological study of a dysfunctional mother-daughter relationship. McGregor stars as Jenna Lane, a young woman trying to escape family pressure to become an Olympic athlete and define her own individuality. De Mornay shines as Celia, a deeply disturbed woman with addictions to emotional abuse and handguns, whose life revolves around her daughter’s competitive career. As she attempts to manipulate Jenna, Celia grows increasingly irrational and ultimately spirals out of control.
