Oddly compelling and offbeat story about lonely teenagers in a small town who become enamored of guns, and though intending never to use them for violent means become swept up in the weapons' mystique and power in spite of themselves. Distinguished Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg's second English-language film features a standout performance by Jamie Bell (whose anthropomorphized revolver is the lady of the title), and the others (including Novella Nelson) are good, too. Though the admirable message is anti-guns and anti-violence, the moral issues are too muddled, and the film's inevitable bloodbath ending is dramatically unsatisfying. Profanity and rough language, violence and bloodshed. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
