This entire film rests on the shoulders of a very young girl and, let me tell you, she carries the weight of it like The Mountain carried the 1,400 pound log that broke a 1,000 year old Viking Strongman record. Quvenzhané Wallis has monstrous talent, and I think the uniqueness of this movie did everything to showcase it.
Don’t be afraid. I won’t smite you. Probably.
