Chloë Grace Moretz,
Prim schoolteacher Miss Meadows (Katie Holmes) is not entirely what she appears. Well-mannered, sweet, and caring, yes, but underneath the candy-sweet exterior hides the soul of a vigilante, taking it upon herself to right the wrongs in this cruel world by whatever means necessary. Things get complicated, however, when Miss Meadows gets romantically entangled with the town sheriff (James Badge Dale) and her steadfast moral compass is thrown off, begging the question: "Who is the real Miss Meadows and what is she hiding?"

Katie Holmes is absolute perfection and so absorbed in the role she becomes the character. Miss Meadows makes you question how far you would go to protect innocence if you knew you could prevent it from being taken. A character movie that grabs your emotions and convictions satisfying to the last second of film. This is by far her best role in anything and hopefully will get her well deserved recognition as a character actress. Brilliantly directed and executed, Miss Meadows will share it's deserved place in cinema history as a film that stands out on it's own and delivers a message we should never forget. For those of you that love gripping vengeance films this one redefines the rules of engagement. Superior film making.
