I heard good things about this movie. At least, I think I did. But hell if I can remember from where or whom. Anyway, this movie stars Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey in their film debuts as Juliet Hulme and Pauline Rieper, respectively. Juliet and Pauline are two teens with a rather…er..obsessive relationship. I think obsessive is too weak though. “Crazy as fuck” may be more appropriate. Anyway, two girls become crazy friends, one is going to move away, they freak, they kill one of their mothers. That’s the jist.
I’m a little on the fence about this one. I wouldn’t own it, that’s for sure. But it was entertaining to watch this whole fantasy/relationship unfold. And I found Kate Winslet a little annoying (and I usually like her in stuff.) or rather,her character annoying. And a little spooky. You know, that may have been the point.
