    Synopsis


    Hard Candy
    A teenage girl agrees to meet a thirtysomething fashion photographer in person after becoming acquainted with him in an online chat room, and the resulting encounter finds the line between predator and prey slipping slowly out of focus in director David Slade's provocative and topical thriller. Hayley (Ellen Page) is a 14-year-old teen whose emotional maturity seems to betray her tender age. Jeff (Patrick Wilson) is a potential child predator whose intentions toward his young chat buddy seem less than honorable. After meeting in a coffeehouse and getting to know each other briefly in person, Jeff invites Haley back to his place, and it's not long before Jeff's underage guest is pouring drinks and posing provocatively for an impromptu photo shoot. As the evening's questionable activities take a decidedly sordid slant and the raptorial Jeff appears poised to strike, a sudden turn of events finds that his apparent victim has had a plan of her own from the very beginning. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Super Intense Movie

      Posted

      I rented this movie on Netflix after getting some info on it on an IFC documentary regarding Indie Rex (replace the R with S for real word). I have to say this movie is very intense yet not very graphic. Ellen Page was unbelievably good as was Patrick Wilson and deserve any acting awards possible. The movie is rather claustrophobic in an occassionally psychadelic way as most of it takes place in "Jeff's" house (with differnet brightly colored walls)except for the initial Coffee shop and the final scenes. I don;t want to give away any of the plot so I am going to just say 5/5 stars and a great movie. Depending on your preteen or teenager this maybe ok for them but screen first.

      Ellen Page is an Indie queen

      If you are faint of heart or may be under the age of 12 I do not recommend this film. If you happen to be an indie seeker like myself or someone who just enjoys good movies you have to pick up Hard Candy. Ellen Page ,more famous now for her role of Juno, is a powerhouse. She brings intensity to the screen that takes most seasoned vets at least 10-20 movies. She sizzles. The nature of how it was filmed is new and interesting as well. The camera angles make you feel like you are there with Jeff (patrick wilson) on the kitchen table. I don't want to give away too much, just go out and buy it.

      I will not ruin the story by telling it, but if you are looking for a alfred hitchock like movie this is the one. There is alot of conversation, but it is with meaning. You will always be surprised at what is happening and I really don't think this movie got its just rewards. Don't let this one pass you buy...

      I would recommend this movie to anyone old enough to watch rated R movies. It has a pretty unique story line and kept me on the edge of my seat.

      This movie is definitely worth watching. As previous reviewers have said, there are different twists in the movie that make it stand out. I honestly wouldn't want my 15 year old sister to see it. It's just too adult.
