They are indeed precocious fourteen year old Hayley Stark and thirty-two year old photographer Jeff Kohlver. Their interactions, including their meeting, are laced with indirect sexual innuendo, most specifically on Hayley’s part, although Jeff is clear also in an indirect manner that he does not have sex with minors. Regardless, Hayley is further able to convince Jeff to continue their face-to-face at his place. There, both Hayley and Jeff’s true intentions come to light, their meeting which was no accident on either side, and the intentions which may be incompatible and have serious and deadly consequences.
Plot: Hayley’s a smart, charming teenage girl. Jeff’s a handsome, smooth fashion photographer. An Internet chat, a coffee shop meet-up, an impromptu fashion shoot back at Jeff’s place. Jeff thinks it’s his lucky night. He’s in for a surprise.

Very difficult to like
This is a very difficult film to like. It deals with tricky issues, features some committed performances, but ends up adding up to less than the sum of its parts. Overall, not worth sitting through.
Review By: Phil_Chester Rating: Date: 2019-12-27
First fifteen minutes, yeah! Then a nosedive into torture.
Patrick Wilson plays a 32-year-old professional photographer who we first see flirting with a 14-year-old girl, Ellen Page, on the internet. They meet at a cafe and, after he takes her on a little shopping trip, she more or less eagerly agrees to go to his apartment. So far, so good.

The movie could easily have been procrustianized into another movie-of-the-week about a depraved Humbert Humbert salivating over an innocent, weeping, victimized young virgin. But it doesn’t seem that way at all. It heads in a more adult direction. Wilson doesn’t have long, greasy hair and jailhouse tattoos. He doesn’t brag or try to con her in any way. He seems like a nice guy, with his professorial specs and his bland handsomeness and his apparently genuine reticence about taking a pubescent girl to his flat.

And Ellen Page is like, wow, a bit dazzled by the attentions of this grown-up boy but, wow, she’s like pretty forthcoming in every respect. “Don’t peek now,” she says upon entering the dressing room to try on his gift. “You’re not mature enough,” he says, grinning, not trying to peek. And then she opens the door and appears topless except for her bustier, her rock-hard abs rippling, and asks, “Is this mature enough for you?” In his apartment this same banter goes on. She makes jokes about the photos of young girls that adorn his walls and his explanation is both serious and understandable. If his photos are good it’s because the models are good. The photographer is just the vehicle. At least one of them has gone on to the Ford agency. He’s slept with none of them but has been in love with one, when he himself was younger. He has a closet full of pictures of nature for the World Wildlife Federation or something too.

By this time it’s clear that this isn’t likely to turn into a depraved monster flick. The guy may be suffering from Lewis Carroll syndrome but he’s fundamentally okay. The girl is quick-witted and perceptive, attracted and perhaps flattered but not discomfited by Wilson.

So — is something good in the offing? Will we learn something about why normal young men are attracted to teen-aged girls? Will we get some feeling for why adolescent girls develop crushes on mature men? No. We will not.

Page mixes some screwdrivers and knocks Wilson out with one of those “drugs” that only exist in the movies, the effects of which are almost immediate and which last only long enough for the victim to be tied up helplessly. The young girl taunts him, pierces his ploys with ease, accuses him of being, oh, just about everything in the book, including a murderer, though he’s guilty of nothing more than bad judgment. Not hideous judgment. Just bad judgment. Then she does to him what I once helped a group of Samoan villagers do to some male pigs. The movie shows this surgical procedure as simple, and it must be if it can be performed with a razor blade by a heavy handed farmer clad in a loincloth, although I must say the pigs objected like nobody’s business, much more than Wilson does.

The plot, such as it is, isn’t worth describing in any more detail. Torture is torture. I was as disgusted by what happens to Wilson as I am by what happens to innocent young women in slasher movies.

Who gets a kick out of such ineffable trash? Towards the end there is some mumbled business about Wilson having been involved in the murder of a young girl. Are we then supposed to be rooting for Ellen Page as an avenger? It’s a bit hard to do that because until the end she had no more than a crazy suspicion that Wilson might have committed such a heinous act. I don’t think we’re supposed to feel sorry for Wilson either because the first time we meet him he’s trading innuendos with some girl-child. What’s more, he’s got a stash of some unspecified photos of naked girls that Page discovers while rifling his apartment. Even without the evidence, we suspect him of harboring indecent thoughts about teen-aged girls. Is THAT enough reason to emasculate and kill him? If so, a lot of men are in trouble. And so are women. Being punished for thinking bad thoughts is the business of the Thought Police.

I suspect the audience this is intended for is the same audience that claps and cheers as slaughters, each grislier than the last, follow one another in climactic order in a typical slasher movie. What a strange and pitiless people, who can applaud when an innocent is dismembered and yet wants to kill a man who has had offensive sexual impulses that he manages to control.
