WOW!!! This movie was awesome and extremely sad!!
December 5, 2012
Haven't read the book but I feel that this is not a good adaptation & the film feels rushed, If you're planning to see this be prepared for its difficult subject matter & some really disturbing scenes
August 7, 2012

October 29, 2012
This is such a good movie. Hard to watch at times but well worth it.
September 10, 2012
Brutal but well acted.
February 18, 2012
This movie is completely fucked and deeply disturbing; it rocked me to the core and remains the only movie ever to do so.
August 21, 2012
This is a movie that I have been wanting to see for a while..
August 4, 2012
Dangerously good performance by Ron Eldard - a performance that could have hurt his career, if his career had ever taken off.

Either way, 'Daddy Glen' steals most of the scenes.

You can't solve everything with a shotgun.

A poor South Carolina mother has two little girls. Her husband was killed in an unfortunate traffic accident and she now works hard as a waitress. While working as a waitress her brother introduces her to a gentleman from the factory that seems perfect. He cares about the wellbeing of the girls and deeply loves the mother; however, after they are married and he struggles to make enough money to get by he snaps.

"When are you going to do something to make your daddy proud? I can tell you when. Never."

Anjelica Huston, director of Agnes Brown and Riding the Bus with My Sister, delivers Bastard out of Carolina in her directorial debut. The storyline for this picture is very compelling. The characters are perfectly presented and the cast delivers excellent performances. The cast includes Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Rooker, Ron Eldard, Christina Ricci, Lyle Lovett, Jena Malone, and Glenne Headley.

"Someone has to love her enough to care how she turns out."

I have begun watching Michael Rooker pictures I haven't seen and decided to start this journey by watching this film. I thought the acting was good and felt that numerous scenes were intense and well delivered. Jennifer Jason Leigh was excellent in the lead role and Rooker was an fabtastic side character that was easy to root for. I strongly recommend seeing this movie.

"He told me he wouldn't touch me if I took a bath in whiskey and put a paper bag over my head."

Grade: A-/A

Disturbing, heartbreaking... It left me wondering why we are called human.
April 13, 2012
There should have been revenge on that low-life son of a bitch!! Other than the farrly disappointing ending it was a decent film about child abuse.
January 29, 2012
This movie made me angry for all the abused children that have no one to protect them.
January 11, 2012
This film is incredibly difficult to watch, but the performances, were absolutely amazing.
January 3, 2012
