While going through my drafts folder I came across another little gem I completely forgot to tell you about. So todays post is about The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane, one of Jodie Foster’s earliest movies. Let’s see whether it’s as good as Taxi Driver!
Thirteen-year-old Rynn moves to the seaside town Wells Harbor with her father. It’s soon turns out that Rynn is no ordinary child and obviously has something to hide. The story intensifies when the landlady’s adult son begins to make sexual advances. Is there a way for Rynn to get out of all this? And where is her father?
This film is intense! Jodie Foster’s performance is brilliant and compelling. As the plot slowly unravels, things are getting darker and more serious. At first you don’t really know what to expect but once the story picks up speed you’re hooked. Believe me, I was glued to the screen, desperate to find out how it will end.
Another plus point of this film is the atmosphere. Everything just fits perfectly: the setting, the light, the music, the colors – simply superb.
I honestly don’t know why this little gem isn’t more popular.
The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane is a thrilling movie. It’s one of those unknown films everybody should check out. 100 % recommendation!
