Goofs

In the scene in which Dakota Fanning (Lewellen) is lying in the bed, the character played by Robin Wright Penn asks her to sing her an Elvis song. She sings part of "Can't Help Falling In Love" which was not recorded until 1961 for the movie "Blue Hawaii". See more »

Quotes

Daddy: I got you somethin'.
Lewellen: What'd you get me? What'd I get, what'd I get?
Daddy: Let me see if I can find it. Let's see, where'd I put it? Baby, I can't seem to find it. I just don't know where it is.
[He hands her an Elvis record. She screams in excitement]
Lewellen: Daddy!

If you love Dakota Fanning then it is worthwhile
9 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The voter of 7 was mostly for Dakota and her excellent acting. The story was admittedly slow and plot fairly thin, but then it is a Chick Flick, which is all about emotions and relationships, so pace and plot is somewhat irrelevant. The acting was superb all the way around. I saw it based on Dakota being in it. Everyone else's acting was very good from David Morse, Piper Laurie and the Snake Guy. A better Southern Goth tale is Winter's Bone, but like my summary says "If you love Dakota Fanning then it is worthwhile." FYI - I did not hear about all the "controversy" about Dakota's character getting raped. It didn't influence me one way or the other. I have known that this has happened and showing it in context is not inflammatory, although if you were a victim and it still greatly messes with your mind, I don't think seeing it would help.
