I just saw this movie at the Santa Barbara film festival. First off, I enjoyed the film. The acting was great, the writing was good and the cinematography was very good for an indy film. I thought it was pretty intense but still very watchable. I went with some friends and it seemed like the girls I went with were more effected than I was. Maybe because the subject matter had a lot to do with the abuse of young women in a fundamentalist Mormon society. But this movie totally goes way past things like "Big Love." It's more of the level of Warren Jeffs and the raid that happened a while back. At first, I thought some of the scenes were a little unbelievable until I listened to a Q and A after the movie and found out that some of the things that happen in the movie were similar to documented events and stuff. That was what really shocked me. I had no idea young girls were "sold" into marriage through business deals and that sort of thing. After hearing that the movie really came together in my mind. I still had a few issues with a couple of parts, mostly just technical things. I chalk that up to it being an indy film.
I'd highly recommend it and I hope people go to see it because the message is good.
