hard to swallow

This afternoon some of my housemates and I watched Hard Candy. It's not so much graphic as it is disturbing. The film prompts an important issue about sickos, sexual abuse, challenging its stereotypes, and the issue of revenge and violence. Ellen Page, the leading actress does a phenomenal job portraying an innocently insane 14 year-old girl whose motives are to torture a good-looking and wealthy photographer suspected of being pedophile and possible murderer. It's a must-see. The script is well-written, the actors are amazing, as well as the cinemetogrphy. It's tough to explain but if you're curious, watch it!

Very intriguing film about sexuality, youth, and power. Hard to watch indeed, but good food for thought. Glad you saw it.
