Hayley isn't seen changing the ice, yet the bag appears full when ever lifted without the bottom being dominated by melted ice (better known as water), also for as long as the ice had been sitting on his lap, you would think that there would be a distinct discoloration, but there isn't. See more »
I saw the trailer for Hard Candy when I went to see Hostel (which sucked, but we'll not get into that). I was immediately drawn to it. It's suppose to come out April 14th but it came through with the Central Florida Film Festival two weeks early. I could have waited and paid less and got a better seat, but oh my god, even with a crap view I was blown away.
The cinematography was masterful, the acting was spectacular, the dialogue was a little awkward in pints but never really faltered, and the plot! You would think a movie consisting of 2 characters in a house would have it moments of tediousness, but not at all. So many psychological thrills it will set your mind a boggling.
