Shes a truely great actress, Hard Candy was amazing performance.But I am truely upset at the fact that she will become a "household name", like most great things, I had hoped she will stay under the radar for a while. (Not to say she hasnt, or hasnt earned it, because she has.)At least I will always have her performance in Hard Candy before the Hollywood machine destroys and corrupts her.
how did you not have a problem with the film's hard-core right-wing ideology? SHE WAS amazing as was the rest of the cast... But FOX searchlight did an amazing job of masking a film as indie, hip and liberal... while giving off some of the most right wing ideology i've seen on camera.... (a company owned by Rupert Murdoch Espousing a conservative agent... What in the name of Out Foxed)...If Pat Robertson had written the movie... It couldn't have had a more right-wing pro-life subtext...The message of the movie is simple: Keep your babies... no matter what... everything will work out just fine... Your parents won't mind... You'll get the man of your dreams.. and you'll make a couple (or mother) very happy...It was hard to enjoy a movie that's intention was to undermind row v wade...What's amazing about the flick.... It seems the liberal thing to watch... Basically the cast of arrested development... Great young actress... But it's a shockingly pro-life film...I hadn't realized Carl Rove was a screenwriter...But i do agree the gal's got talent and moxie...
You're looking for a message where there is none.It's about one girl. The same argument could be made in the opposite direction by saying that it shows what happens when a teenager with no morals -- and one who hasn't been taught abstinence in school -- indulges in sinful, premarital sex.Besides, if she had had an abortion, the movie would've been over 20 minutes into it. Once again, it's one person's story; trying to make more of it is silly.
