Chloë 's leading role.
17 May 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

What a pleasure it was to watch miss Chloë Grace Moretz in this gritty film. She brought to life the character of "Luli" in a very realistic and oh so typical teenager kind of way. I enjoyed the way that the story telling was accentuated through "Luli's" drawings, and the occasional spoken word. Derek Martini's work here was impressive, and I was comforted in the way the ugly scenes were foretold. Andrea Portes book was somewhat more graphic. All the cast worked very well together, and it was cool to see Chloë and Alec Baldwin together again. My attention was held from the first frame to the very last. I hope they bring this out on Bluray, so I can enjoy the tale for years to come.
