[walking past her]
Yeah, I heard she was born in a bar.
You could shake your knuckles at the sky. You could get mad and say, "I don't got nothing." You could get stuck.

I saw HICK in Toronto and I was blown out of my seat, as was my best friend and my kid- sister. I don't know if you have to be under 25 to "get" this movie but we definitely felt like we had been on the craziest ride of our lives.
As for me, part of me felt like I kept getting slapped in the face, part of me felt like I kept falling in love with Eddie Redmayne, part of me felt like I was super-uncomfortable but was dying to see what was going to happen next and a really big part of me couldn't believe how good of an actress Chloe Moretz is, at only 13 or 14 or whatever.
I don't think I've ever seen a girl that age be that good, yes, TRUE GRIT included. Honest. Chloe Moretz in HICK makes that girl from TRUE GRIT look like a one-note wonder. Dare you to see it and disagree. Dare you.
The other thing I couldn't help but notice is that Blake Lively can actually act. And she's good. I know. I thought she sucked, too. But she's really, really good in this movie. (Even better than in THE TOWN.)
I only know Alec Baldwin from 30 Rock and my dad hating him but I thought he was excellent in the film. I've only see him do comedy so this was really different. Maybe he should do more dramatic roles because he was really interesting in this one.
I loved the costumes in the film, I just wanted to be a part of this world in a weird way. I don't want to spoil the end of the movie but, put it this way, we were all crying. It was embarrassing, really.
We were all crazy about the film and I even bought the book after, which I read super-fast. I, then, gave the book to my best friend and she read it and now she won't even give it back. I don't know. I think HICK is the only thing I've seen, or read, in a long time that seems to have anything to do with me. Everything else is all about vampires or comic-books or people sawing each other in half. I love this film because it was like nothing I'd ever seen before but I really felt like it was happening, thanks to the amazing acting of everyone but especially Chloe Moretz.
I just read that this film is coming out in theaters and I'm extremely excited because I can't wait to see it again. I recommend this film to anyone under 25 or to anyone that is a girl, or maybe a gay guy. I wouldn't recommend this film to anyone like my parents, though. I just don't think this is a film for older people. They'd probably just get mad or freaked out or something.
