hard hitting drama

Milla Jovovich has never been better. The movie is hard hitting and
funny. It reminded me of Cassavetes directing style and early
Scorcesse. All the actors give good performances and the first time
I've seen Sarah Starage and now I am a fan!! Great job! The supporting
cast delivers. Stephen Dorf is back! He is a really wonderful actor and
shines in this film. The women who play the mothers are perfectly cast.
Funny and gritty.
Aisha Tyler surprised me with her performance. Never seen her like that
before. Production values are good and the film is shot well. Go see

Terribly poor, raw, rude and brutally indecent

I fell sorry for the director, Mr. Lennon, who did this film. He simply
failed. A seemingly good script was hopelessly spoiled by the bad work.
And, man, why of earth has it become cool all of a sudden to make films
with tons of swear words, full frontal nudity and too much blood? I am
not preaching. I only say this film should be rated as RRR and XX for
its blatant overuse of nude scenes (totally inappropriate), its vulgar
language (too many foul words, in and out of time), and finally, its
sheer brutality. It leaves you with a very heavy heart and empty mind.
Blank page. Milla Jovovich was never worse than in this film. Her play
is thin, generic and in best times, just pitiful. Her nudity is
unnecessary and her tragedy never convinces. The film passes by like
any bad Tarantino's work or any Milla's soulless ditty. I felt pity,
pain and fear for those kids who could watch this ferocious film, with
drunken husband, beaten wife, lesbian policewoman, slack friends and
empty ideas. What the film does not certainly offer is the main idea.
It is just blank. Do not watch it and do not show it to any kids. Badly
