Great movie not pointless at all not gross
This was really an excellent movie. Anyone who says this movie was pointless or boring I don’t have any idea why. This movie was the complete opposite, I think it was the first movie I’ve seen in a long time that had a point and was not mindless or boring.
I’m a fourteen year old and the movie was great, it was very relatable even though I haven’t been through any sexual abuse.
If a movie can relate to me so deeply even though I didn’t grow up in that time period, grew up in New York City, and did not go through some of the things she went through then I really think it’s an excellent movie.
The content was not disturbing to me at all in a sense most people say. I think most people who say it’s disturbing haven’t seen the movie because yes, it is very real and true but not gross. I think it’s great the director/writer touched on the subject of sexual abuse in such a great way because that subject is not brought up often in our society but it’s something that is happening.
I was not sure of seeing this movie-not because of the rape scene because I knew people were making such a big deal of it but because of the other comments about how the movie wasn’t going anywhere or was pointless. But I was so surprised that they were so wrong and that for me and from what I could see in the audience it was the complete opposite of pointless.
Bottom line if you haven’t seen the movie already and aren’t sure if you ant to go and see it, go and see it. I wasn’t sure if I should see this movie either but it turned out to be one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time with great writing, directing, and acting. Very real but not gross or disturbing and a story that needed to be told.
Fanning is great as country girl Lewellen that has a crazy for a father and a generally torn life. But when she’s sexually assaulted to the tune of “hounddog” (which is horribly overused in the film) – you begin to wonder if the movie has depth or is just out to shock.
