Ten Movies You Need To See…: #10 “The Loved Ones”

18 08 2013

High school teen guy is kidnapped by quiet girl from school and her crazed dad, so that she can have a proper date to their own private prom. Comical? Could have been, but it ain’t.
This Australian film mixes squirm-inducing menace mixed with strong, rich characters. The small cast and limited locations make it feel claustrophobic, and the events seem plausible.
Beyond the ughhh parts, this movie is a great examination of families devastated by violent crime.
