Watch this if....you don't mind a depressing look at runaway 13 year old girl that wants nothing more than to feel accepted and wanted. It is depressing and hard to follow at some points in the film.
Acting/Casting: 7.5* - This is the one bright spot of the film. I thought that all involved did a tremendous job. Moretz puts in a strong performance as the lead role of Luli and Eddie Redmayne is great as a Eddie. The supporting cast of Blake Lively, Rory Culkin, Alec Baldwin and others do a tremendous job as well.
Directing/Cinematography/Technical: 5* - This score would have been higher if I felt that the movie had some clear direction, but I was somewhat lost at times. The cinematography is very convincing and there is some solid music to accompany the film.
Plot/Characters: 5* - I felt at times that this was a movie about nothing. However, it still manages to keep your interest although it is fairly choppy and confusing at some points during the movie. Mainly, it follows a young runaway girl through the many struggles she faces on the road and her quest for acceptance.
Entertainment Value: 5* - After it was all said and done, my opinion was that the movie had very little value. It has some holes that make it hard to follow and overall it is an average movie aside from some of the acting.
My Score: 7.5+5+5+5 = 22.5/4 = 5.625
