Storyline

SADIE is the story of a girl who will stop at nothing to preserve her father's place on the home front. Sadie (Sophia Mitri Schloss) is the daughter of a soldier and models herself after his military example. When her mom (Melanie Lynskey) begins dating a new man (John Gallagher, Jr.), Sadie vows to drive him out by whatever means necessary. He is the enemy, and if she's learned anything from the world she inhabits, it's that the enemy deserves no mercy. The film also stars Tony Hale, Danielle Brooks, Tee Dennard and Keith L. Williams.

A sad film
1 January 2019 | by boc321See all my reviews

Many of us have been resentful of a potential step parent unwantedly stepping into a parent type role. Well what if a child went too far? This film explores cause and effect of a teenage girl who holds her uncaring father on a pedestal, and the lengths she will go to , to keep it that way. As the film progresses, we see that Cyrus, the mum's boyfriend, is not perfect, he has a drug addiction, seems set in his ways, and is weak at dealing with problems. That would describe many people we know. With all these shortfalls i still didn't want to see him the target of the daughters wrath. The plot makes me wonder if this has happened in real life. The daughter only realises her actions are all mistakes later on. I knock a star off as i would have liked to have seen the after-effects explored more deeply. Great film unless you want to see things blowing up : )
