An underrated cult classic based on a novel of the same name by Laird Koenig.

Frank Hallet (Martin Sheen) is a mixture of creepy lecherousness and silken charm with a voice that puts me in mind of a cat's claw snagging nylon. His mother, Cora Hallet (Alexis Smith), is an interfering tightly-wrapped WASP who views children, particularly confident non-obsequious Rynn, as annoying nuis... read more

“An underrated cult classic based on a novel of the same name by Laird Koenig.

Frank Hallet (Martin Sheen) is a mixture of creepy lecherousness and silken charm with a voice that puts me in mind of a cat's claw snagging nylon. His mother, Cora Hallet (Alexis Smith), is an interfering tightly-wrapped WASP who views children, particularly confident non-obsequious Rynn, as annoying nuisances. Watching Rynn (Jodie Foster) go toe-to-toe with her and get the upper hand is a delight and Rynn knows exactly where Cora's achilles heel is in the form of her son Frank's hinted at indiscretions with young girls. When Rynn hits the mark (and she does several times) Cora is visibly shaken as her pretentious respectability shows its fragility. It matters very much to Cora what people in the commu” read more

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E8 - August 2012 (33 movies items)

" It is strange that this film can feel sweet and creepy at the same time. Adding another layer of 'deeply disturbed' to the overall film. A creepy and spooky little gem of a film that is nether gory or grotesque. So, very much the type of 'horror/thriller' film that I enjoy."

"Woot, Jodie Foster! Good movie. I thought of "Hard Candy" more than a few times. The poster reminds of Noir's Kirika."

"Omaperäinen, mutta etäiseksi jäävä tarina yksin elävästä tytöstä. Jodie Fosterin roolia on kehuttu ja pätevästi tyttö näytteleekin. Kuitenkaan hänen koppava hahmonsa ei herättänyt sympatiaa, joten ei kiinnostanut vaikka paha setä ahdistelikin häntä. Pedofiiliteemaa leffassa käsitellään todella ohuesti mikä ei itseäni haitannut. Kokonaisuuden ongelma on lähinnä hieman heppoinen käsikirjoitus ja jännityksen puute."
