I did not realize how conservative I was until I saw this movie. The actors did a great job playing each character but I was left to wonder how disturbing it actually was once I sat through it. Just glad it is over and it was not for me.

Wow! An "American Graffiti-like" poster with a little "Cape Fear" John Cusack cutout on bottom, and this viewer went in expecting something wholly different. They got me. This film is shocking but refreshingly nowadays, that shock actually serves the purpose of a plot. And man oh man does this film shock a viewer! Don't imagine you'll leave this movie and just forget it. You won't. It's hard, ugly and difficult to take even in small doses. Yet, it's a REAL film, not just some Oscar-baiting fluff. The performances are difficult to watch because of the characters, not how they're played. There are some mighty good performances here too. No mistaking that fact. Even more surprising are the casting choices. Who knew Nicole Kidman could actually ACT? This one's going to stay in limited theatrical release and when you see it, you'll understand why. It wouldn't play well at the local strip mall due to subject matter and the content. It's definitely worth seeing but ADULTS ONLY.

This movie was awesome!! If critics would get off their high horse and look at it from an artistic point of view, they would finally understand its just entertainment!!! Pure unadulterated polarizing entertainment!! ??????
