Ellen Page is hot. She's hotness in a teeny tiny package, but she's hot nonetheless. She's like 5 feet of fury, that one is. I don't think there's a single person reading this who hasn't see Juno yet. If you haven't, I'm taking your *lesbian-card* for the day. Don't worry, I'm just gonna hold on to it til you get your act together. Come back when you're able to give me at least 5 quotes from the movie. Go on!
Now for everyone else who's already on the right Ellen Page...page, I wanted to make sure you knew about a movie that didn't get much buzz since it came out pre-belly. It's also an extremely difficult movie to stomach, even though you won't be able to take your eyes off of the screen:
Another movie with a deceptively sweet title that I think you MUST see immediately is "Candy." It stars Heath Ledger in one of his best performances (if not THE best), and Abbie Cornish, who I don't know much about outside of the film, but godDAMN if she doesn't give the performance of a lifetime in this one! Seriously... it's just a stunning piece of art:
So there you have it. Two amazing pieces of film that share a common name with four or five performances that will leave you breathless (haha, I sound like an announcer guy--but I'm serious!). Neither of these movies are ones that you'll wanna gather your little brother's 2nd grade class around ye olde big screen to watch with you. And you should probably leave the grandparents at the dinner table while you're checking these suckers out. But if you're open-minded and don't HAVE to have a train station explode on your screen every 3 minutes or some chick teaching you how shopping brings out your inner beauty to be entertained, I think you'll love these flicks.
If you've seen either or both of these movies, what did you think? Amazing, right??
