Gimme Shelter is an excellent movie

My husband and I went to see Gimme Shelter on opening night. We are happy to say it was more than we were hoping for in the telling of this true story. Through so much hardship, sadness and pain, the beautiful young lady inside Agnes (Apple) emerges when love, respect and hope are offered to her. The performance by Vanessa was outstanding! I didn't know who she was before seeing the movie. The movie drew us right into it! We wanted to reach out and help her! We really like James Earl Jones and were glad to see him play the role of the Catholic priest. We are recommending this movie to everyone we know and plan to go back and see it again as well as buy it on DVD! Thanks to the producer of this excellent movie and to the theaters that are showing it around the country!

Messy Reality of a Street Kid's Life

Finding a safe place can be hard when you don't know where you belong. This drama is hard to watch, but engaging. Vanessa Hudgens turns in a compelling performance as a feisty street kid who is searching for her identity amid hard choices. Rosario Dawson, James Earl Jones and Brendan Fraser fully inhabit their roles. The film addresses poverty, class, systemic racism, white privilege and the problems in the shelter system. Not a big film, but thought provoking.

admirable attempt

Agnes 'Apple' Bailey (Vanessa Hudgens) has another fight with her drug-addicted mother June Bailey (Rosario Dawson). She tries to see her absent biological father Tom Fitzpatrick (Brendan Fraser) and gets arrested. He is a wealthy broker with a young upper class family. The troubled Apple wants him to get her out of the foster system. She stays with them until they find out that she's pregnant. She gets arrested for stealing and crashing a creep's car. Priest Father McCarthy (James Earl Jones) sends her to a shelter run by Kathy (Ann Dowd) with other girls like Cassie (Emily Meade). This is not a subtle movie. Vanessa Hudgens is obviously trying to stretch beyond her pretty looks. I'm of two minds about the effectiveness. While I admire her attempt, she may be trying too hard. The same can be said about Dawson. There are big swings here and I appreciate them. There is a need to structure the drama. It comes off as a rambling narrative. The reveal of the real inspiration helps a little but doesn't fix this central problem. This is a flawed indie with some intriguing swings by the two actresses.
