Dark-edged satire about a maliciously manipulative 15-year-old (Evan Rachel Wood) who recruits two classmates (Elisabeth Harnois and Adi Schnall) in accusing one of their high school teachers (Ron Livingston) of sexual misconduct, entangling all involved in a web of deceit that has tragic consequences. Despite an impressive performance by his Lolitaish lead, director Marcos Siega's cynical, mean-spirited and unjustifiably raunchy revenge tale has pretensions of social commentary but lacks any sympathetic characters and seems content to shock rather than offer any real insights on the issues explored. Recurring sexual situations, including suggested sodomy and oral sex between minors, and, in one case, between a teenage girl and an adult woman; masturbation; a suicide; brief drug content; same-sex kissing; excessive explicit sexual language; and some profanity, ethnic slurs and lewd humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
