'Girl in Progress'
Eva Mendes may get top billing in this comedy-drama, but much of the focus is on younger star Cierra Ramirez ("The Suite Life of Zack & Cody"), playing a young woman who largely has to find her own way through life in the absence of her mother's (Mendes) attention.
Mom is preoccupied with romantic interests, leaving a teacher (Patricia Arquette) to provide the teen with inspiration.
