I really loved this film. I was warned that the subject matter was disturbing, but I was not prepared for the performance of the young woman in Buy It Now. Chelsea Logan is absolutely captivating. The emotional places this courageous,young actress is willing to go for our benefit demonstrates talent far beyond her years. I also thought the supporting ensemble, especially Rosemarie Dewitt, was very well cast. Antonio Campos, the director, is clearly very talented. I will continue to follow his budding career. I'm not kidding. This is one of the best films I've seen this year. I saw Kronicas (John Leguizamo) last weekend and that was up there too.
