Reconnecting also with the high school nerd (Oswalt) who she reveals her plan to Mavis sets about her intentions blindingly oblivious to the damage she intends to cause and equally unaware of how everyone else sees her.ALthough Mavis is setting out to do a terrible thing the fact that you hate but also hope for her to see the error in her plan is down to the perfect work of Theron. Mavis is highly damaged goods and she plays it in such a way that works great with the equally damaged Matt. Can these two find some semblance of fixing themselves?With a small but good selection of extras this was a real nice surprise of a film to watch, though it may not be everyones cup of tea thanks to the intentional dislikeability of the main character.
