A sad film
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 : )
