What do you do if your perpetually drugged out son is kidnapped and held for ransom by violent thugs in South Africa? In Lullaby, Melissa Leo plays a mom who has to deal with this problem. Her answer is to scrape up any money she can find and go to South Africa to bring her boy back home, by any means necessary. While probably not the best choice for folks in the real world, in an action movie, it works out pretty well, thanks in part to a surprisingly good performance from Melissa Leo. It’s her sheer determination to get her son back that’s the driving force behind Lullaby.
