A movie to scare even the most jaded. Horror without the blood. Hard Candy was Ellen Page's true 'coming out' film. Showcasing just how deep her acting chops were at just 17. Sophistocated Terror is the best description. Patrick Wilson's 'victim' added a realism seldom seen. A smart, thinking Halloween film, for sure.
I was curious to see if Ellen page in another movie than Juno. This one was disturbing. She played a teen who's was sure that found a pedophile. A hard subject the encounter between her, Healey Stark and Jeff Kohlvert are very non- traditional . All this movie turn around the mind playing game. Ellen appears really convincing in that role. She's demonstrate a real talent.
