Libby Day: There are few phrases that annoy me more than "I won't bite". The only line that pisses me off faster is when some drunk, ham-faced dude in a bar sees me trying to get past him and barks: "Smile, it can't be that bad!" Yeah, actually, it can, jackwad.

Dark Places Is based on the book with the same name written by Gillian Flynn the author of Gone Girl.

I’ve read the book about 6 months ago and really liked it so when I saw that they were making a film, my hopes were high. The film was defiantly not as good as the book (or Gone Girl) but it wasn’t bad. (And I think that the trailer ((above)) is sending the wrong signals it’s not as thrilling and dramatic as it looks).

I didn’t expect Charlize Theron to play Libby Day and didn’t know what to expect but she does it really well, but my favourite is defiantly Chloë Grace Moretz , she is “spot on” for the roll as Diondra and I kind of wish that the roll was bigger, it would have made the film a lot more interesting.

It’s a book worth reading and you can watch the film if you got nothing else to watch.
