“Josie” should’ve been good. Hell, Sansa Stark looking all hot got me into the film. But, why didn’t it work? Well, when you try to convince viewers that the Valley is the South, you’re going to have a problem. When you try to tweak the Lolita tale for your semi Southern Gothic outing, you’re going to have a bad time. Plus, that ending.
As someone who had to sit through that ending, I’m not going to spoil it. It’s not like Sophie Turner grew a dick and chased people around the sets. That would’ve been imaginative and got a thinkpiece posted at Jezebel. This is a film that uses Sophie Turner’s attractive looks to sell a lukewarm story about misplaced romance and other gross things. It’s a pass.
