Contrary to popular critical dismissal and scathing comments about pedophilia and such, this Movie is so delicate in its portrayal of a Red Riding Hood/Dorothy adolescent's brutal coming of age story that it defies explanation as to the outrage.
In a time when just about anything goes in Films and on TV about such essential and disturbing themes that were all but ignored in Hollywood History, or at least vaguely alluded, this 21st Century take is heartfelt, touching, and without exploitation. In fact, most of it is as understated as possible without obligatory Rape and Violence clichés that make one wince and angry.
All the Actors here are memorable and give outstanding performances and the Director and Screenwriter (adapting from Her Novel) give us an independent Gem that will likely buck the negative buzz and become a Cult Movie. This is an understated and underrated Masterpiece of subtle and substantial Storytelling and Movie making.
