Three sentence movie reviews: Jolene

 In All (-ish), Three Sentence Movie Reviews

I loathed this movie because I could tell it was supposed to be a sort of “actor-flexing-her-acting-muscle” kind of film.  But because the actor was a women, it was a troubling story of a sexually abused girl making the same bad choice over and over again in a frustrating way that had a lot of the actor in question being naked and not much other character growth.  I can see that picking a woman and watching all of her movies is a totally different experience than watching the films of a man.

Cost:  free from library
Where watched: at home.

    Interesting. You have not had a marathon of a women yet, have you? Too bad her introduction was in a bad and nakedy movie.

    Treasure hunters, I think you will agree that there are so many good Jessica Chastain films! Try Take Shelter if you haven’t seen it yet. But don’t watch Jolene!

    Here’s clue #9. You are almost there.

    My Crime genre page has a lot of films on it, but this film is one of the few to have women carry out the job.
