There would seem to be plenty to get excited about in Derick Martini’s second feature film, Hick (based on the novel by Andrea Portes).If the plot is not especially enticing (a young girl from a hick town leaves home, travels West, and experiences the evils of the world), then the cast certainly garners attention.
After both of her parents disappear, Luli decides to hitchhike to Las Vegas.
Needless to say, things do not go quite as planned.
(Martini would have done well to inject a little more true grit into his protagonist.) Hick has a tragic ending that comes as a real surprise, but it’s also a surprise that makes very little sense beyond perhaps being a product of a film wrapped up far too neatly.
By the end credits, the steady flow of Bob Dylan throughout the film has done as much—if not more—to salvage Hick as its story.
Whilst Hannah’s exact coat is now sold out, there are plenty of similar alternatives to choose from, so get click, click, clicking (right) to shop them now.
But if the hefty price tags are putting you off, fear not!
Moretz plays Luli Mc Mullen, the product of a broken, alcoholic Nebraskan home.
In the beginning of the film, her mother (played aptly, but briefly by Juliette Lewis) decides to throw Luli’s thirteenth birthday party in a bar because that’s what hicks, apparently, do.
Considering the fact that we first saw the lovebirds hanging out two years ago, it's kind of crazy that we've only been able to rely on speculation until just this month.
