Top Customer Reviews
"Elsewhere" has elements of assorted thrillers in which innocents get involved in circumstances way above their heads. As the film progresses, suspense heightens and there are a few good scare moments. Ms. Kendrick does a competent job. You believe her as bright, level-headed, and thoughtful, and she does convey that all-important thriller movie ingredient -- escalating fear. Bonus features include deleted scenes, photo gallery, director and producer audio commentary, and a making-of featurette.
One day, Jillian disappears. Sadly, nobody other than Sarah seems to care. Weird things start to happen when she searches for Jillian (I'll not say anything more than that). The fact that Jillian has hundreds of "cyber buddies" is a clue, but a vague one. Thankfully, her buddy Jasper is there to help Sarah through the travail of trying to figure out what happened to her friend.
In 2 words, Anna Kendrick is elegance personified. Her performance is nothing short of captivating & if you're anything like me you'll find yourself wanting to "dive into the movie" to rescue her character. This is a far cry from horror movies where you're typically inclined to look upon the characters as nothing more than ax murderer-bait.
All in all, this is a good movie that focuses on a very serious issue: children & teens who go missing. We always hear about high profile cases, but not so much about children who don't come from well-to-do or affluent families. Jillian always wanted to get out of the small town in Indiana where she grew up. Sadly, she finds that the big wide world is far more malevolent than she imagined it to be. U2 fans will be inclined to recall to mind the song from THE JOSHUA TREE called MOTHERS OF THE DISAPPEARED.
All right, what is this movie about? Well, it's about a girl, Janet, who went missing 5 years ago. And, the town never really cared it, and didn't really do or look for her. Then, later, we find that many girls went missing over the years too. Now comes Sara (Anna Kendrick) and her best friend Jillian. Jillian is one of the slutty girls that comes from a poor negligent family. Sara is one of those nice, over achiever girls that comes from a wealthy family. They both work at the same store and goes to the same school and are best friends.
Now one day, Jillian goes missing. And Sara, is the only person in the whole town that seems to care about it. She wants to find out what happened to her best friend. After some time, Sara thinks Jillian is in super trouble, because she got this weird video message and then this weird text from Jillian's phone.
Now, Sara has a friend name Jasper, and he really likes her. She needs his help because she can't do it alone. Jasper doesn't really want to help her, but does it anyways because he likes her so much. ( I think he should had man up and asks Sara for things too, if you get my drift. Wink wink.) Jasper comes in handle because he works at the school's library, and he allows Sara to use the computers there with open access because he knows the password. Sara can't use her computer at the house because her comp has tracking software on it and doesn't want her mom knowing what she has been doing.Read more ›
