If you know the name Terry Gilliam, then you're obviously aware that any film with his name on it isn't going to be business as usual. Full Story

I saw the movie and I found it amazing...people who don't like it just don't understand it..all the story is seen with the eyes of a nine year old girl...

Don't let the mob of critics scare you away: this is Terry Gilliam's best effort since Brazil and one of the finest of the decade. However, it's not an easy pill to swallow, featuring a neglected 9-year old girl as protagonist in a very adult-oriented storyline. Left to fend for herself in a mostly deserted prairie, the young girl takes her ghastly circumstances and reimagines them into a self-constructed fairy tale not dissimilar to Alice In Wonderland or a particularly demented Brothers Grimm story. The actress' performance is mesmerizing along with the fantasy-tinged visuals, and the ending is heartbreakingly unforgettable. Unless you're easily shocked or forgot what it's like to be a kid, I absolutely recommend this movie.
