After having online chat room chats for three weeks, "Thonggrrrl14" convinces "Lensman319" to meet in person in a public place, they being up front that they are a fourteen year old girl and thirty-two year old man respectively. They are indeed precocious fourteen year old Hayley Stark and thirty-two year old photographer Jeff Kohlver. Their interactions, including their meeting, are laced with indirect sexual innuendo, most specifically on Hayley's part, although Jeff is clear also in an indirect manner that he does not have sex with minors. Regardless, Hayley is further able to convince Jeff to continue their face-to-face at his place. There, both Hayley and Jeff's true intentions come to light, their meeting which was no accident on either side, and the intentions which may be incompatible and have serious and deadly consequences.Written by
The pedophiles are the current public scarecrows. I know real people who'd never let their kids out of their sight because they might instantly become pedophile victims. So you put a "pedophile" label on a character and now you can do anything to him. And many viewers will blindly approve.
My point of view is that the movie is not about "the mind of a pedophile" or "revenge for all little girls". It's about a mentally ill person who wishes to gain an absolute power over another person and how much she enjoys the process. And the process is shown in much detail. And there is not much besides it. I don't see any other way but come to a conclusion that this process is what the movie was actually shot for. Everything else was just a cover. A comfortable excuse for those who likes to watch that kind of stuff as it was an excuse for the main female character who liked to perform it.
The tag-line of this movie should be: "It's okay to burn witches and enjoy it because they are witches! Now let's watch how they writhe in the fire."
