Mary-Louise Parker's latest film role looks like one emotional performance.
In a just-released clip from Parker's upcoming indie crime drama Jamesy Boy, Parker plays the mother of a troubled teen (played by newcomer Spencer Lofranco) who is rejected admission from a public school because of his sordid crime history.
"Miss Burns, let me be frank with you. We have some concerns," the admissions officer says to Parker's character as her son sits next to her. "We've read your son's record and we're not convinced that our school is the right place for a student with his particular history."
