Sassi Rating 2/5
There’s no denying Blake Lively is fabulous. Her sense of style and her taste in men! Wow!
If it weren’t for her performance in this film, it would be completely unbearable. First things first, Hick is not the movie you want to watch when you’re looking for a relaxing flick, nor would it be recommended for a “first date” film.
It’s graphic, brutal and honest. If that’s your sort of film, then you’ll be satisfied.
Hick tells the story of a young teenage girl, Luli, who escapes her life in Nebraska and her alcoholic parents, taking a pistol (yes a gun!) along for the ride. Along the way she meets Glenda (Lively), who takes her under her wing.
Essentially, the film is a coming of (brutal) age for Luli (Chloë Grace Moretz) as she escapes her horrible childhood and heads to the bright lights of Las Vegas. What could be better – right??
What we’re confronted with is a compelling movie with scenarios that remind the audience of the harsh realities that some unfortunate souls face.
It’s not a film that makes you feel happy at the end, but it certainly reinforces the message, be grateful for what you have.
Available from now on DVD (RRP$39.95) and Blue Ray (RRP$49.95).
