These are some screenshots I took of Chloë Grace Moretz in Kick Ass 2. She is so good, in every film and also in this film. There are basically two characters she plays: the superhero Hit Girl and the normal teenage girl just starting high school Mindy Macready. I love how these personalities are different, even though they are the same person and how her growth moment in the film is when she learns to integrate the two.

There’s also this interplay between Mindy and her guardian, Marcus. They both know they’re lying to each other and they are both keeping up the pretence. At one time Marcus busts her on a lie reminding her she’s 15, not 5, so she just switches to a more age appropriate lie…

Uptown Girls – parallels

Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning in the 2003 film Uptown Girls. Brittany plays the child-like daughter of a rock star who starts babysitting Dakota’s character who is a totally grown-up 8 year old. The babysitter needs to grow up and take responsibility for her life, while the child needs to learn to be a child.

Throughout the film there are parallels set up between the two characters.
