American Woman ★★★

You know when you're introduced to somebody... you see them make hasty decisions, possibly due to unfavourable circumstances... but you're rooting for them to find happiness anyway, because they're basically a good person?

Yeah, that.

Reminded me of "Gone Baby Gone, or "Mystic River", in its examination of how a blue-collar community copes with a crime in their midst - although unlike those other two, it's more character study than procedural.
