because of stephy's blog entry, i became intrigued about the movie... I wanted to see what went on and what prompted steph's reaction to the movie...
all i can say is... i wish i hadn't. it was gruesome. it was sick. it was disturbing.
halfway through the movie, i couldn't take in what was going on so i tried to search for the true story thinking that the real story is less brutal. but i was wrong...
the movie pales in comparison to what really happened
i was soo disturbed about the movie that i couldn't get a decent sleep and for the first time, was actually talking in my sleep (according to lui). and i woke up with gastric problems. yes, the movie is THAT bad.
the worst part of the movie for me is KNOWING THAT IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED. :(
in all fairness, ellen page (of JUNO) did a great job portraying sylvia, the victim.
