Chloe Moretz is a redneck Lolita in the red band trailer for Hick
I feel like a dirty old man every time I think that Chloe Moretz is going to turn out to be quite the hottie when she grows up. But, now having seen the red band trailer for HICK, I know I will not be the only one.
We got a glimpse of the poster for HICK a few weeks ago but now we get our first look at the movie itself. The cast is quite good, featuring Eddie Redmayne, Blake Lively, and Alec Baldwin.
Plot: A smalltown teenager Luli (Moretz) escapes to Las Vegas, leaving behind her alcoholic and abusive parents. Armed with her smarts, a pistol and pocket money, she hitchhikes her way west. Along the way, Luli crosses paths with Eddie (Redmayne), an unstable rebel with questionable motives and Glenda (Lively), a cocaine-snorting drifter on the run. Adapted from the critically acclaimed novel by Andrea Portes, this powerful story pulls you into a provocative world of drugs, seduction and murder.
I think calling that a red band trailer is a bit of a stretch, but underage sex, drinking, and violence will always scare the MPAA into stricter ratings.
HICK seduces theaters beginning May 11, 2012.
