What a fucking mess. Imagine Tideland on the set (and budget) of a Bobcat Goldthwait film with no style worthy of the name and a pointless Dylan soundtrack and you're almost there. First you have to experience a 13 year old getting raped which is passed off as profundity. Then you're there.
I loved the styling and general vibe of the film, however after you discover Eddie's true intentions the plot just becomes chaotic and nonsensical. Martini tries to make the plotline extremely dramatic, which just becomes convoluted, messy and unbelievable unfortunately. The whole last half of the film is disappointing as the first 45-50 minutes progress so well & with so much promise of a Glenda/Luli girl power duo
Blake Lively has never been able to act. This movie is a prime example of her inability as an actress. It makes me sad that Chloe Grace Moretz was roped into performing in this lackluster film with her.
I have to say, I did like this film. The story can be a little sketchy and I thought it needed a better script that could have given the audience a better understanding of its characters. I think that was what lacked the most for this film. Then again, there's some really good actors involved who did a good job playing their roles. Particularly, Eddie Redmayne who portrays a rather complex character.
