i went to see the movie today. totally cool! i'll add here my little review that i posted in my LJ.

The film is vision to behold and the story pulled me in. For a spell there, I forgot I was following a group of rag dolls around. This is a tale about survival and things that need to be done to accomplish that. Dominance, fear and bravery were themes heavily throughout. I think children will like this, but if they're younger than 12 years old, the images may be too intense. I've read some say The Seamstress is frightening. Elijah thinks so as well, but I found The Brain more grisly. My growing dotage may be getting the best of me because I teared up a little on some parts.

What Shane Acker has done is have the audience follow along with 9. As he is born into a world he knows nothing about, so are we. We tag along with the same questions as he has. 9 obviously becomes the leader, convincing the others not to let things be as they are. I loved the twins 3 and 4, 2 and 5. 7 was cool too. Heck, who am I kidding? I liked them all.


i'd like to add how i loved how the dolls were very inventive. they made things from the resources that were available to them. the film being in a post apocalypse world, there's lots of debris that's used to help them along.

shane acker expanded on his short film successfully.

I saw the film last night with my husband and quite honestly hadn't been reading up much about but enjoyed it quite a bit.  I know what you mean about dotage as I teared up a little at a couple of parts too.  But anyway, I think children over 8 shouldn't have a problem with it especially if seeing it with their parents.

i'm glad you liked it romeny. it's good to know i wasn't the only one getting a little emotional.  but that's what good storytelling will do. still, some say the story is lacking, which i don't know how. it's well rounded and complete. i wonder what kind of mentality these people have not to see in a fantastic film that i saw. 

the movie did well at theaters this weekend taking in nearing $11 million in the states and coming in second. just what focus features had anticipated. no word on the other countries it opened in yet.
