    Being a parent doesn't always make you an adult. The new heartfelt mother-daughter comedy, Girl in Progress arrives on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand September 11 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Girl in Progress follows the story of a mother-daughter relationship as they try to navigate life and what it means to grow up and become an adult.Eva Mendes (The Women, Fast Five), Matthew Modine (The Dark Knight Rises, Showtime's "Weeds"), Cierra Ramirez (All In, TV's "Suite Life of Zack & Cody") with Emmy® winnerPatricia Arquette (TV's "Medium") and Eugenio Derbez (Under the Same Moon (La misma luna), Jack & Jill) star in this enchanting family comedy.The Girl in Progress DVD includes a "making of" featurette and will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.98.


    Grace (Mendes) is a single mom. She is too busy juggling work, bills and the very married Dr. Hartford (Modine), to give her daughter, Ansiedad (Ramirez) the attention she desperately needs. When Ansiedad's English teacher, Ms. Armstrong (Arquette), introduces her students to classic coming-of-age stories, Ansiedad is inspired to skip adolescence and jump-start her life without mom. While Grace becomes preoccupied with the increasing affections of her co-worker (Derbez), Ansiedad enlists the help of her loyal friend, Tavita (Rodriguez), to plot her shortcut to "adulthood." But as her misguided plan unravels, Ansiedad and Grace must learn that sometimes growing-up means acting your age.
