The lacking "vital element" in Misery...
6 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

The plot, as told by figjam (I'll try not to be too corny):

> A stranded and dirty teenage girl is picked up along a desolate strip of highway by a traveling salesman. Being very straight-lace as defined by the times, he's at a loss as to how to react to (and protect himself from) the primal instincts of a lost, lonely little girl.

> Unable to read or write, unable to understand the concept of hygiene, her closest "companion" being her rapist, all the girl needs is the help of a social worker. How do you get her the help she needs when you're her captive? > She needs companionship, but she doesn't know this and therefore, can't articulate it. She tries to keep the salesman from leaving her at any cost.

> The key words to understanding Rosalie are GROTESQUE INNOCENCE. It's this innocence that makes this movie better than Misery (according to me). I wonder if this is the vision that Stephen King had for Misery but couldn't quite achieve.
