Do you want to hear a story? Do you want me to tell you about the Wildling?
His teeth are long and sharp like this. And so are his nails. Long and sharp like this. And his hair is long and black. All over his whole body.
Do you wanna hear more?

Okay. You're my special little berry.

I loved this movie's originality, which is hard to come by these days. The main complaint is that the pace was way too quick which left the story with way too many things unsettled, or glossed over. Even if there were a sequel, this story wasn't told to its full potential. The main actress carried the movie with a brilliant performance which is why it earned my 6 stars. Would have been a solid 8 borderline 9 if the story was told with a little more detail.
