Product Description

Provocative thriller from director David Slade. For three weeks, 14-year-old Hayley Stark (Ellen Page) has been chatting on-line with 'Lensmaster319', a 32-year old fashion photographer, named Jeff (Patrick Wilson). The two agree to meet at a coffee shop called Nighthawks and they hit it off, despite the massive age difference. Hayley appears to flirt with Jeff, and Jeff generally restrains himself, even admitting that he must wait four years before he can be with her. But his reservations are apparently not enough to decline when Hayley all but invites herself over to his house. It's not long before Jeff's underage guest is pouring drinks and posing provocatively for an impromptu photo shoot. As the evening's questionable activities take a decidedly sordid slant and the raptorial Jeff appears poised to strike, a sudden turn of events finds that his apparent victim has had a plan of her own from the very beginning.

‘Hard Candy’ is a kind of ‘cat and mouse’ tale in the most traditional of ways. You may think that a story about – effectively – a young, skinny fourteen-year-old girl versus a fully-grown healthy man might be a little one-sided. However, you obviously haven’t seen how Ellen Page plays it.

A successful photographer (Patrick Wilson) has a weakness for chatting up underage girls over the internet. Yet he gets more than he bargained for when he finally gets round to meeting Ellen Page’s character, ‘Hayley,’ For she takes it upon herself to perform a little adolescent vigilante justice upon him.

Like I said... you may think that there’s not an awful lot a teenager can do to a man. But then if I told you the specifics of what transpires, I’d be spoiling it for you. All I’ll say is that the balance of power shifts and then shifts again between the two as their own private little war ensues.

There’s really only the two characters in the film, therefore it’s up to Page and Wilson to shoulder the film’s burden. And they do it pretty well. Both characters are a pair of sad and damaged individuals and one of the film’s many strengths is that it makes it hard for the audience to tell who’s the guilty party – if there is one at all.

It’s not an easy watch. You have to be ready for a pretty dark and bleak drama with some really nasty moments. One thing’s for sure... this ain’t no ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ tale.

Jeff, a talented but lecherous photographer with a penchant for underage girls lets himself get talked into meeting with a young fourteen year old girl with a nervous but worldly attitude to the world.

At first, her agreement to go to his house leaves Jeff thinking the ball is completely in his court, but things begin to quickly go south when he learns that Hailey is not who she seemed to be and that he may have stepped into a trap.

A darkly disturbing but clever twist is what really makes the movie, and it's definately one that will have you gripping the edge of your seat (and guys possibly wincing while crossing their legs). Incredible movie carried completely by Ellen Page and Patrick Wilson with only a vague cameo by Sandra Oh.

Ellen Page is fantastic at playing a child despite her age of 18 at the time (really sucking you into the initial innocence), and Patrick Wilson is believable enough to leave you somewhat sympathetic despite the story.

LOVED this film.

The main character is a mysterious young girl named Hayley Stark who is a metaphorical bear trap for pedophiles. She passes time making a hobby out of her calling to expose them and gives them what's coming to them.

Although it's an 18 certificate, it teaches a lot of cold, hard lessons about how pedophiles work. Young girls need to see this.

"Just because a girl knows how to imitate a woman, does NOT mean she's ready to do what a woman does. I mean, you're the grown up here. If a kid is experimenting and says something flirtatious, you ignore it, you don't encourage it. If a kid says 'Heeey, let's make screwdrivers' you take the alcohol away and you don't race them to the next drink!"

Great, tense, thought-provoking film. Ellen is phenomenal, as always.

I really wanted to like this movie as I like the storyline, and I love female-led revenge movies.
Unfortunately the heroine of this tale was such a horrid, prissy, preachy little cow I ended up wanting the nonce to win. And that can't be right.
So I didn't finish it. I may pass it on to a friend though.

Hard Candy is a 2005 provocative thriller film focusing on the interaction between 14 year old Thonggrrrl14 Hayley Stark (Ellen Page) and 32 year old Lensman319 Jeff Kohlver (Patrick Wilson).
The film opens with an openly flirtatious online chat between Thonggrrrl14 and Lensman319 and in which the assertive Hayley soon convinces the eager Lensman319 to meet at a café to "hook up" after he admits to fantasising about her. At the café, Hayley suddenly comes across as shy and insecure but almost immediately openly flirts with the much older Jeff even making several references to her age (14 years old) and the fact they have only been chatting for three weeks, while Jeff generally restrains himself its obvious he's more than interested, even admitting that he must wait four years before he can be with her. Despite all this sparring between the two, Jeff reluctantly agrees to take the insistent Hayley back to his house on the cities outskirts. I won’t go into any more details other than to say the film isn’t what you expect.
The acting between the two characters is superb and the clever script makes things seem rather innocuous at first, but as the film advances you rapidly become aware of the subtleties of the wording and emphasis. Despite realising there is something not quite right with both characters, it’s difficult to tell who is the player and who the victim really is. Then the pace changes and the plot takes one of its numerous twists and turns. This is what keeps this film riveting, that clever script and that interaction between the two characters, for despite a couple of minutes, Hayley and Jeff are the only two on screen and its almost entirely set in 2-3 rooms of Jeffs plush house.
