This film is nothing more than a bunch of clichés strung together. I didn't believe one minute of it.
It wasn't the actors fault there was just nothing for them to act with and don't get me wrong I love a good "poor girl done good" story like Erin Brockovich but this was just tedious.
I am also a big fan of Jennifer Lawrence, but this is the worst film to date I have seen her in and I can't believe there was talk about an Oscar for her performance in it.
It has nothing to redeem it. Some of the cinematography was interesting but again didn't add anything to the story. Everybody was cardboard and every scene just made me more and more angry that I was wasting my time watching it.
