I enjoyed very much the child's perspective througout the move and the mesmerizing acting skills of the little girl. However the story did no quite convey a clear message.

Rated as a "must see" by some movie critics, my wife and I felt this was a waste of time and money. No broad appeal, no message that you could carry home - a colonoscopy would have been more fun.

The movie is relatively dull and pointless. The reviews made me expect to see something profound but it certainly wasn't.

This was the most unappealing and depressing movie I have seen in a long, long time. The setting was so bleak and repulsive, you wanted to go home and take a good shower. I guess I missed the point of this movie! And so much for four stars ratings!!!

This is one of those movies you want to see a second time because the first time you're on the edge of your seat wondering where this is all going. It's not unlike Winter's Bone in it's depiction of poverty and the isolation it brings. Social workers, anthropologists, and medical practioners should see this film. It's rated PG-13, but I don't think you'd want to take your kids unless you're trying to scare them. The squirels scene in Winter's Bone was tame in comparison. The music and score will stick with you too.
