just finished watching the DVD of 3 year old movie "hard candy" starring a very yound ellen page. I recall reading the reviews when it came out and thing "hmmm...sounds kinda cool", but now that I've seen it I know that it is so much more than kinda cool. it's a thriller, and a morality play. there are so many twists and turns that it's amazing.
