Review: Sienna Miller makes ‘American Woman’ her own

When we first meet her, she’s wild, somehow still rebelling in her thirties against her mother (Amy Madigan), her older sister, Katherine (Christina Hendricks), and the opinions of their blue-collar town. But while losing Bridget has an impact on Deb, she doesn’t change in predictable ways. She’s the picture of resilience, but Deb doesn’t look like the inspiring, grieving archetype. She’s strong, but there’s something delicate about the film, particularly in the gentle way it treats this person who we initially see as anything but.
