Sorry my site was down again, apparently I don’t learn my lesson the first time. Why do I have more trouble than anyone else with their site? How do I always injure my site to the point it has to be taken to the ER?
Anyway, I’m going to be doing reviews again because I miss it. I hope it isn’t lost on everyone and that you get something out of it.
I remember seeing a preview for this a long time back but had forgotten about it but then I saw a friend on Netflix had seen it recently so I decided to put it to the top of my queue. I’m glad I did, it was quite the experience.
This movie is about an older man named Geoff who meets Hayley, a young 14 year old girl, online and invites her to his house. The first thought is: this girl can’t be this naive, she must know better.
You can’t help but imagine what this man has in store for her and how she’ll get out of it. Of course, Hayley is a particularly intelligent girl who has a few tricks up her sleeve as well.
In a movie about an older man seducing an underage child you might assume that the sympathy goes to the innocent child but assumptions don’t work with this movie. Patrick Wilson (Geoff) is not the one-dimensional character; I had a lot of sympathy for him.
Maybe I’m just an idiot but I really didn’t know how this was going to end and several times during this I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t sit still needing to know how this could possibly end. I didn’t skip to the end though, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the douceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s way of doing it.
