That was incredibly disturbing...I found no enjoyment what so ever in this film. Also, I don't feel I have learnt anything from this film other than some people really need psychiatric attention.
I loved it so much I bought it. This movie was amazing to watch. Afterwards I found out that this was shot in a few weeks with a relatively low budget. That was a really tight shoot. The cast and the crew were amazing and the DOP, magnificent. The story was strong and the pacing was just right. Everyone needs to see this at least once. The story is against the grain or not easy to take. It is surprising and discussion provoking. This movie was well done and disturbing. Exceptional performances by Ellen Page and Patrick Wilson. Bait and Trap.
Mixed feelings. The film itself was quite good, but I don't know. Obviously I didn't feel sorry for Jeff but I just didn't feel like I gained anything... The acting from both sides was great but it was just hard to root for Hayley when she was soooo fucked up. Like really, really messed up. The film itself was quite unenjoyable which was to expect due to subject matter. I just feel like the plot could have been handled better, it felt a bit boring at times (which is weird because so much fucked up shit kept happening!).
Second time around, and thought it was even better, but made me think that Jeff wasn't who she said he was, and she was just twisted.. see what you think.. some spot on acting from both actors...
Interesting and really intense movie. The feeling was amazingly disturbing throughout, which is something not every movie can pull off. The end was simply amazing, and when it finished I had a really hard time to see anyone as the "hero". Really different movie.
A very pleasant surprise! From a low-budget project I did not expect a high-quality feel like it. Ellen Page is always wonderful in every role she plays. The story is interesting and is tactfully with an issue as difficult as that of pedophilia. Very raw at times and, therefore, recommended for adult audiences.
