Hick 2011 Film

I’m a massive Chloe Moretz fan, and while her delivery can sometimes be off (Hugo, 100 Days of Summer) she picks a lot of interesting roles. Hick is a film adapted from a semi-autobiographical novel by the screenwriter, depicting a girl running away from a neglectful family and falling into some dark circumstances. It begins brightly with Moretz quoting Dirty Harry into the mirror, but things get serious and disturbing fast. Moretz, Redmayne, and Lively put in excellent performances as damaged and disturbing people. The ending is abrupt, but given what happens in the movie it fits well enough.

If you like a slice of very troubled life out in rural America, Hick is for you.
