Red State

de Kevin Smith



Hormones can be very treacherous. And if you’re not convinced just ask the teenagers who, attracted by an ad promising group sex with an older woman, fall into the trap of a group of religious fanatics determined to eradicate the libido of America’s youths through extreme methods. With Red State, Kevin Smith delves deeply into the most virulent, real horror and vents his anger against all sorts of conservatisms. To do it he relies on a cast headed by the recent Academy Award winner Melissa Leo, the great John Goodman and Michael Parks, one of the favorite actors of Quentin Tarantino (who, by the way, has already confessed his admiration for this movie).
