Seriously its A Fantastic Drama (by mail-subinsmail)
Don't know why some users states its a bad movie., May be because of some insest contents? Then they are very wrong., Childhood abuse led some kids to a unusual state of mind which turns their life upside down. Each of the character is brilliant, Acting is so real.. Nothing is wrong, Direction is amazing, Alex pettyfer and nicola peltz steal the whole show, Its a Good watch., You may get some "hangover" even after watching this,..
Sleeper - Sleeper - Excellent Movie (by fredfinklemeyer)
02/25/2019 Dark, foreboding, desperation all words that describe the feeling throughout this movie of hardship. The foundation is a family murder, a mother incarcerated and hidden family incest, all intertwined. The movie is the unfolding of all that is hidden. An excellent movie. Bon Appetit
Wasn't expecting (by nyshaw)
I wasn't expecting this movie to be this good. I agree with others - slow burn but I couldn't turn away. This movie tackled a rough subject but did it well.
One of the best movies I've seen this year (by liamscheath)
Great movie. Not sure why people are suggesting its not. Heart wrenching, difficult to watch at times. Clearly didn't have the pressures of a big studio dictating the plot.Give it a go and you won't be disappointed.
Can't Turn Away (by herrbrugger)
Back Roads is like watching a train wreck in slow motion. It's the car accident on the side of the freeway at which you can't help but stare. Bad family situations and dysfunction grow progressively worse as more and more buried facts and emotions are revealed. So sad, it is on the scale of a Greek tragedy, except our hero is not to at all blame, making this a true drama/melodrama. Direction and acting are superb. This is not your typical action/horror/superhero bubble gum fare. This is for intelligent and sensitive adults with patience and appreciation for human suffering. One could <more>
argue it is heavy handed, with all the layers upon layers of misfortune and dysfunction, yet that clearly is the intent of the story. Our hero is so admirable and relatable, charged with the responsibility of raising, protecting, and otherwise caring for his three younger sisters, but in many ways, he is still a child himself, and a scarred one at that. Living in this impossibly chaotic and crazy situation on a day to day basis makes a predictable, restrained life in an asylum or penitentiary seem to be a step up. Now I want to read the novel.
Not much more I can say. This movie hits all the right notes for a dysfunctional family drama. Stellar script, acting, and just the right amount of tittilation to keep it it thoroughly engaging.
It had me until the end... (by the_nephilim71)
I thought the acting was phenomenal and the story was interesting yet, heartbreaking. Pettyfer made a great director for this, especially since it was his first time. The biggest problem I had with the movie was the ending. I kept hoping things would work out for Harley and that the police couldn't possibly believe he actually killed his lover. I was sorely disappointed with the ending because Harley ends up in prison and his baby sister is stuck living with their uncle and two psychotic killer sisters. Even if Harley did feel guilty about the incest, he wouldn't have let Jody live <more>
with those other two psycho sisters. I don't believe for a moment that he would take the blame for the murder his sister commited after he criticized his mother for doing the same thing. That's just not logical.
I loved this movie in all it's aspects. The acting is very good, especially the main actor, who is superb showing the right emotions or lack of them after his life is shaken by traumatic incidents. The plot is very well writen and the timing and pace describs the right predict interest line. The story is always actual as it shows a hard and very hidden reality. And yes, there is some atrocity, cause the reality sometimes more than we wanted is also atrocious! I didn't find it slow. But if you think that it is, what's that suppose to mean? Aren't "Paris Texas", <more>
"2001 Space Odyssey"; "Fargo"; "There will be blood"; or even "The Godfather" awesome slow paced movies? Also I love Julliet Lewis. So good to watch her again in a movie. Love it.
