Although I will probably not revisit this again, it is definitely a well-made and challenging film. It is not a pleasing or uplifting film, and although not gratuitous in its violence, is quite stressing nonetheless. It raises some socially relevant issues and as far as remakes go, it is heads and shoulders above the rest. Extra kudos to Naomi Watts for taking on such a challenging role, and Devon Gearhart gives a terrific performance for someone so young in a small role.
