The Vicious Kind

by Kelly Lemaster

I went into watching The Vicious Kind having no idea what it was about. And I have to admit that after I watched it, I had to really sit down and just think about it meant. At first I found myself somewhat disappointed. However, the more and more I thought about it, the more intrigued I became. I ended up watching it once more and absolutely fell in love. The Vicious Kind focuses on a man named Caleb, who has been through a really rough breakup and is trying to deal with his strained relationships between his Dad and brother, Peter. The course of the movie takes place during Thanksgiving, with Peter’s girlfriend, Emma, tagging along.

I don’t want to give anything away, but the whole concept of this movie is focused on real human experiences. Most movies give you a problem and present a perfect solution. The Vicious Kind isn’t like that, and neither is real life. It shows the struggles we face and the terrible decisions we make. The Vicious Kind didn’t try to romanticize life; it showed you a really complicated situation and gave you more complications. In the end, there was one quote that did change my life, and though it’s simple, it is the complete truth.

“Sometimes people do things that they know are wrong, but they just do them anyway. Because to do the right thing would be too painful.”

We’ve all been in the place where this could apply to our lives. Whether we’re the one making the mistake or the one being wronged. This movie was such a pleasant surprise. Though, I must warn it does have rather colorful language and would most definitely not be appropriate for children. But if you are looking for an independent film that does not quite fit the norm, but rather makes you contemplate your life and existence, The Vicious Kind is the first thing I would recommend.
