Audience Reviews for Bastard out of Carolina
This was a hard movie to watch. It sickened me. Jena Malone, was insanely good in this movie. It had to be hard for her to portray certain parts in this movie at such a young age. She was just amazing in this movie. It is a heart wrenching movie about a young girl who is sexually abused by her mothers boyfriend. Her mother is an awful piece of work. I wanted to go through the screen and physically harm her. I was just so disgusted with her and the way she treated her daughter. All of the actors all acted their parts well. Its just an awfully good movie that will have you going through a lot of emotions. I know I went through a lot watching it. It's not a film you can watch over and over again, but it is one that you would watch every once in a great while just on the story and the powerful acting. It is a movie that should be seen by all. A must see.
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
A brilliant film!

|Glen:||It's my one day off, and you gotta tear around here? Now just, just cool it, kid. You're a girl, not a racehorse.|
|Bone:||(mimicking him) You're a girl, not a racehorse.|
|Bone:||You're a girl, not a racehorse.|
|Glen:||You little bitch! You little bitch! Come here!|
|Glen:||I want you to try to be reasonable, girl. I want you to tell your mama. I want you to stop all this nonsense, before you make me really mad|
|Bone:||I'd rather die than go back livin' with you!|
|Glen:||I talked to Annie, you know, and she's comin' back. She promised. She said that she needs a little more time, time to make it up to you. She loves you more than I can understand. You know what your mama told me? She's not comin' home until you come home too. You're gonna have to tell her it's all right. You're gonna have to tell her that we'll be together, again?|
|Bone:||No. I don't wanna live with you no more. I told mama that she can go back. I told her that she could. But I can't. I won't.|
