Audience Reviews for Too Young to Die
A story that's baswed on capital punishment for a miner.
Juliette Lewis, as ever plays a great role, accompanied by Brad Pitt, who in my opinion plays these type of parts very well, where he's not playing a pretty boy.
VERDICT: A though provoking film, enjoyable, definitely worth a watch
It was soooo incredibly heart breaking and sad. This was the ultimate purpose of the movie... it was a political movie that tries to get you to be against the death penalty. I felt bad for the killer because of her situation but at the same time, if we let her go, then other people will think they too can get away with murder. I didn't know how to feel at the end. My heart was aching for the young girl and all her bad choices. Brad Pitt was such a sleezeball in this movie.
Based on the true story of Attina Marie Cannaday, played by Juliette Lewis, this is a movie about right and wrong and the blurred, grey area in-between. A young girl who was wronged in so many ways, and tossed aside by everyone in her life, commits a murder. Although what she did was wrong, her circumstances make you feel sympathetic. She is ultimately sentenced to death, but what the movie doesn't show is that this sentence was later reversed and Cannaday is currently out on parole.
