Disturbing subject!! Fantastic Movie!!
Never heard about it while in theaters, so I was a late comer and saw it on the internet tonight because of some of the comments on this website.. At first I found it very disturbing,and just wasn't sure how I felt about it. The very end helped when Jeff asked Hayle twice who she was. From her answer I put kind of a spiritual angle to it. Kind of like a highway to heaven avenging angel type thing. When the film was over I said to myself, well, not great, but good---I gave it 3 of 4 stars. Throughout the next couple of hours I was aware of a strange thing----I could not get this movie out of my mind. It nagged at me. Couldn't say why. What I liked most was just the incredible acting of Ellen Page as Hayley.She deserved an Oscar for her portrayal. This movie is like a good piece of music. You get into more than the words to the song, you love that drum or guitar. They make the song as much or more than the words. This movie is like that. Study the acting. Perfect----especially Hayley. They auditioned over 200 women before choosing her. They made the film in 18 days---not much room for re-takes.And under a $1 Million budget so that the Studio couldn't demand any changes. Very, Very good.
