Little Red Riding Hood for the 1990's: After her mom and step-dad are arrested, 15-year-old Vanessa Lutz decides that instead of once again being put
into a foster home, she'd rather go and search for the grandmother she's never met, and live with her. "On the way to grandma's house," (actually
a trailer park) Vanessa's car breaks down, and she's picked up from the side of the road by Bob Wolverton, a counselor at a school for troubled
boys. Bob slowly earns Vanessa's trust, and eventually convinces her to talk about her sexual abuse at the hands of her stepfather. When Vanessa
realizes that Bob is enjoying what she's saying, she realizes that he's "The I-5 Killer," from the news
this movie is awesome. this was early in reese's career and i think it is her best film. she was great in walk the line and i am hearing good things
about her new one....but this movie is the jam...and before anyone calls me on it, yes, election was awesome and she was great as tracy flick
she is tough as hell in this....honorable mention to brittney murphey in this...
I second "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou" but I also have a soft spot in my heart for the Romeo and Juliet retelling. The style and atmosphere in that
movie while keeping to the original script was amazing.
