Suspecting that he is a pedophile, she goes to his home in an attempt to expose him. His emotions during this film were incredible and extremely realistic. Synopsis A mature 14-year old girl meets a charming 32-year old photographer on the Internet. Their interactions, including their meeting, are laced with indirect sexual innuendo, most specifically on Hayley's part, although Jeff is clear also in an indirect manner that he does not have sex with minors. Ellen Page does an incredible job and delivers a mind-blowing performance.
Lastly, I liked how even though the film was a very powerful drama, the script had some light humor in it as well. Hayley flirts with him in spite of the age difference and proposes to go to his house. Their interactions, including their meeting, are laced with indirect sexual innuendo, most specifically on Hayley's part, although Jeff is clear also in an indirect manner that he does not have sex with minors. Cuando llegan, Hayley localiza rÃ¡pidamente algo de vodka y comienza a preparar unos cÃ³cteles. You know what this movie reminds me of, and never saw this one before it.
This movie focuses on two people, Hayley who is a 14 year old girl and a 30 something pedophile named Jeff. A powerful scene which was so intense and disturbing I may never forget it. This isnt a movie of high, fast-paced drama, so my mind was had too much time to start checking all the far-fetched things that were going on. The script is to busy being smart to gloss over such inconsistencies. Hard Candy is also one of the most implausible films committed to celluloid. This is a good movie. But Hard Candy doesn't want to be shallow.
So many people take things too far, and never find out the truth. The acting is also very annoying, especially Ellen Page, who was a bit one-dimensional in her role. It's an incredible screenplay that Mr. Try on it, and be open-minded. Once there, she prepares a screwdriver for them and Jeff passes out. Why did Hayley do what she did? Life is just bad for everyone, but making it worse, does not make it better. His unique craft of capturing not only the characters emotions and anger but also the unique camera angles is remarkable.
The whole I got you, now I am going to make you kill yourself, is just stupid. A little far-fetched but so what. Stopping someone you think is a bad person, does not mean anything, because there are more out there. Avoid this nasty, amoral little film. The cinematography and camera work went excellently with the film.
Once there, she prepares a screwdriver for them and Jeff passes out. This movie with Patrick just makes him look bad as he did in The Conjuring. The way the script develops the characters is amazing and how the film actually has a real ending instead of one of those cop-out choose your own ending films that so many people are using nowadays. The story itself was a good one, but the phoniness of what goes down once Hayley and Jeff are back at his apartment is so over the top and the story just kind of fades. Nothing comes out right, but hey keep arguing just to think it pleases them. Just as bad as conspiracy theorists.
No matter what you say to these women, they just keep arguing. Great stylized look to this film too. When he awakes, he is tied up to a chair, and Hayley accuses him of pedophilia. Even though Hayley isn't an overly likable character, I was cheering her on throughout the whole film. He has to outweigh her by a good 80 pounds of dead weight and the way he fits in the chair; I found it hard to fathom. Her self-satisfied talk is annoying and unconvincing and is part of the reason why Hard Candy is such an astonishing failure of a film a fact supported by its dismal Box Office performance. Reviewed by johno-21 8 I saw this at a late night screening at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and of the 35 films I saw there I would rank this 4.
The film is so serious at times, it was nice to get a chuckle here and there to allow audiences to take a breather from being pinned to their seats with suspense. This also reminds me of a women I met that always said some hateful things about men. It is more like disturbing to hear a teenage girl speak how she does, and it is fascinating how your feelings will go from one character to the other during the movie until you realize that no matter what the end is, everyone is guilty of something and it is not to us, humans, to decide what bad actions can be justified by other bad actions. There are also questions that remain unanswered until the end of the film, when everything is wrapped up nicely - leaving you puzzled to the true identities and motives of the characters throughout most of the duration. Like I previously stated there are only two real characters in this movie those being Hayley and Jeff. The pacing was steady, and phenomenal - after a brief exposition we get into the real suspense about 20 minutes into the film, and it doesn't let up from there. Knock Knock, which I thought was dumb, but better than this one.
She is smart and has planned everything and anything and the film flows together so nicely. An early fall release date has been rumored, and I can only hope this movie doesn't get lost in the shuffle between summer blockbusters and Oscar season. Regardless, Hayley is further able to convince Jeff to continue their face-to-face at his place. Even the brief appearance by Sandra Oh as the inquisitive neighbour is an embarrassment. A heroine who spouts references and smart talk beyond her years. Horror films are not my cup of tea, but psychological drama is.
