Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?
A: Proceed with Caution. It is very slow paced for a very long time before becoming a heart-wrenching thriller about a girl who will go to any length to protect her younger siblings.
Q: Will this movie make me laugh?
A: I'm pretty sure that in the town where this takes place, you could get killed for laughing.
Q: Will this movie make me cry?
A: Mostly it'll make you thankful about all the wonderful things and people you have in your life, because if you can a afford a movie ticket, you're already about a thousand times more privileged than the white trash in this story.
Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?
A: It has already won prizes at Sundance and Berlin, so I'm sure the Independent Spirit Awards will follow.
Q: How is the Acting?
A: At the ripe old age of 18, Jennifer Lawrence carries the movie practically all by herself. And considering there are rarely enough great roles for women, in a year, to fill all 5 spots at the Academy Awards, I wouldn't be surprised if she pulls an Ellen Page.
Q: How is the Directing?
A: Depressing, bleak, grim, meditative, cold, dank, and perfectly suited for this film... If you like that sort of thing.
Q: How is the story/script?
A: The stakes are high for the main character and her family, and the drama is intense, but I'm still not sure why everybody has to be such an a-hole to this poor kid, who's been forced into premature adulthood. As dumb as they are, the townsfolk have to realize that whatever her father did to piss them off, it has nothing to do with her. She didn't ask to be his offspring. And the fact that she is doesn't make her a bad person. It makes her the victim.
