The movie is set in Oklahoma. Several references are made to execution in the gas chamber. Oklahoma has never used the gas chamber for executions. Electrocution was used from statehood (the first in 1915) until 1966, using an electric chair, "Old Sparky". Since 1977, the prescribed method is lethal injection. See more »

Amanda Sue Bradley:
Will you please, just make him go?
Wanda Bradley Sledge:
Oh, yeah, he's going alright; and I'm going with him, because you better believe - Harvey and me - we've got big plans. And you better put the breaks on right quick, girl, or you're out of the picture.

Brad Pitt and Juliette Lewis both turn in good performances in `Too Young To Die'. Together, the two really make the audience believe the roles are real; unfortunately, the roles are real as the movie is based on a true story. The movie has not one upbeat moment in it, then again, it's not suppose to, as the subject matter-the true story-can be described as nothing other than a depressing tragedy. Can our society condone the killing of children in the name of justice, even for crimes like the one described in this story? Or, should children be held to a different, lesser, standard than an adult? `Too Young To Die' does not answer this question, but it makes one think about it. So, if you want a good, thought provoking movie, this is the one, but if you're looking for a laugh, get a different film, because this one will bring you only tears.
