Storyline

On the outskirts of Austin, 10-year-old Annie tears around on her BMX bike, hurls dough at cars, and smashes things up with her baseball bat. Her father, a goat farmer-cum-demolition derby driver, does little parenting. Annie has no friends her age, so her daily routine is filled with solitary mischief. Playing in the woods one day, she hears a woman's plaintive call for help from an abandoned well. Though Annie feels driven to visit the well daily, she is unsure about how to deal with the woman's plight. Written by Sundance Film Festival

Good/bad intentions
6 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

The movie really sets very high goals. And I guess you could talk quite a bit about that ending. But I'll leave that up to you (if you are willing to go the whole distance that is). The thing is that while the main actor (a child) is really good in what he is doing, he is absolutely not likable. Even if you take into account that it's not really the fault of the kid (the kid does not have supernatural powers or anything else like that).

The director was there (with his brother, who is in the movie) and did explain a few things. Again the intentions were very good, but I do feel the movie fails in a few aspects of it. It remains mysterious until the end, which you either think is a good thing or will make you loathe the movie even more. Very strange pace and not really with mass appeal
