Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Crime and Punishment in Suburbia

This is one of the best movies Ive seen in a very long time. It shows the dark side of a girl who looks like a shiny happy person, and her fall from innocence. It shows how the guy overlooked, could be the one person who can save you, your life and your heart.

The review of this Movie prepared by Chey

An interesting and disturbing film about a teenager who murders her stepfather but then her mother is arrested for the murder. The film actually goes beyond this with commentary on life and deeper feelings within the main characters.
