Trivia

According to Martin Koolhoven, when news got around that Mia Wasikowska had backed out of the movie, he got a late-night call from Warren Beatty who suggested another actress for the part on his voicemail. However, Koolhoven already had his eye on Dakota Fanning, and admitted that he did not even call Beatty back. See more »

Goofs

The Accles & Shelvoke captive bolt pistol used to kill the pig was invented after 1913. Though the movie does not specify what year it is, the voice-over talks about 'the old century ', which means the epilogue is probably set in the 20th century and the rest in the three decades before.

The Reverend: People think it's the flames that make Hell unbearable. It's not. It is the absence of love.

Great but horrible
12 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was a good movie in my opinion. The story was well- constructed, the themes were relevant and compelling and the acting was extraordinary, especially the reverent and Dakota Fanning (saw her in American pastoral too the other day, she is a force to be reckoned with in the acting world). So yes, this is a good movie.

But would I recommend watching it to any of my friends or family? No, probably not, because although it was a good movie it made me feel horrible afterwards (as in crying in the bathroom horrible), and this is coming from someone who has seen her fair share of horrors and thrillers throughout the years. I don't know why, but there was something so incredibly heart-wrenching about this movie for me that i have barely slept last night. It was not because of the graphic violence per se, although it didn't help of course, but just because of the atmosphere created throughout the movie.

So if you are planning on watching keep in mind that it is not for the faint-hearted (I feel like Albus Dumbledore warning about the Triwizard tournament lol)
