The striking thing is, this is based on a true story. If you google this you can find further information. The film does a really good job of not leaning to one side or the other. It shows every angle, the non-existent childhood played be Lewis and the predatory nature of Pitt. It also has a hazy line when it involves other characters in the story. Lewis is a very good actress, one of those believable people that easily slips into the role.
This is one of those films that make you question a few things. You are able to see her abuse and wonder how she slipped through the cracks. You wonder about her "mother" and that entire back story. All in all a very gripping and gritty film.
