4.0 out of 5 stars TURN THE PAGE 3 Jun 2014
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
This is a feel good heart warming inspirational film based on a true story. It is faith based and seemingly pro-life. Religion and the Bible enter the film, but like so many modern faith based films, they avoid the "J" word (Jesus).

Apple (Vanessa Hudgens) is a 16 year old girl discarded by society and thrown on its refuse pile. In order to get off the heap and change her life around, Apple must take the first step and decide to change her life. She leaves her abusive mother (Rosario Dawson) and seeks out the father she never knew (Brendan Fraser). Dad is understanding, willing to help, but is not loving especially when he finds out Apple is with child.

Apple wants to have the child against her dad's wishes and through a series of circumstances finds herself in a girl's shelter where she experiences the first love and trust she has ever had in her life.

This is perhaps the best film entitled "Gimme Shelter" without Mick Jagger. Her decision at the end should have been better developed, showing a defining turning point. Brenden Fraser's character was a cut out and could have been more animated. Was that slick hair and awful suit how he really looked and dressed?

Worth viewing for those who like Lifetime type films.

This movie hurt my soul. It really did. It tells the story of Agnes 'Apple' Bailey a 16-year old girl who is abused by her hood-rat mother and whose father left before she was even born. When Apple is tired of the abuse and suspects that she is expecting, she cuts of her hair, steals money from her mother and runs away to try find her father. After finding her father, she is revealed to be pregnant and shows no manners. Her father's wife eventually trieds to get Apple to have an abortion, but Apple runs away, realising that she loved her unborn baby.
Later on, she steals a car from a stranger and is involved in a car crash but survives but is subjected to the preaching from an old, wise pastor who soon enough, send her to a shelter for young pregnant women wanting to raise their babies. There, Apple finds happiness and is able to piece herself back together while becoming more civilised and making many friends even though her mother attempts to take her back and attacks her.
In the end, Apple has her baby and establishes a good yet slightly alien relationship with her father and his family, but cannot live with them due to her love and friendship with the mothers in the shelter.

This movie had me BAWLING MY EYES OUT ALL THROUGHOUT!!!!!! This is not a movie you should watch if you 1) are naive and/or oblivious 2) do not want to cry for an hour or so 3) want to keep a pristine image of Vanessa Hudgens and 4) do not have tissues nearby. (Though, I think that if you like those I'm-crying-but-I-like-it-because-I-like-these-kind-of-movies, then yes. Watch this.

"Gimme Shelter" (2013 release; 101 min.) is not to be confused with the Rolling Stones 1970 concert documentary (nor does it contain the classic Rolling Stones song). It brings the story, "based on true events" we are reminded at the beginning, of 16 yr. old Agnes "Apple" Bailey (played by Vanessa Hudgens), who in the first scene of the movie is running away from June, her drug-abusing mom (played by Rosario Dawson) and her mom's boyfriend. She manages to get from New York across to New Jersey and finds her dad, whom she hasn't seen in ages and now turns out to be a stinking rich Wall Street investment banker, married with two young kids. Apple has a hard time fitting in, and on top of that now it turns out that she is pregnant. Her dad suggests she gets an abortion and "move on with your life" but Apple resists. At this point we are about 30 min. into the movie but to tell you more would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: first, this movie was shot in 2011, and has been sitting on the distribution shelf for quite some time. Second, even though we saw Hudgens last year in a very unlike-Disney role in "Spring Breakers", you could easily argue that this movie was an earlier attempt to break out of the Disney image (although on much safer territory). When you first see her, she is almost unrecognizable. I know it took me a few moments to adjust. Third, there are a couple of great performances in here, none more so than from Rosario Dawson in the role of the completely unlikeable mom. James Earl Jones as Father McCarthy has a small role to. He tries to bring some much needed guidance to Apple.

Such a great cast. Fantastic performance from Vanessa Hudgens. It really shows what a powerful actress she is. I don't feel that she got enough credit for this role.
