No. 3 — Hick

This wildly western dramatic film is about a 13-year-old girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) who runs away from her abusive parents. Headed to Las Vegas with no real plan, she meets a drifter played by Eddie Redmayne. After that relationship goes sour, she teams up with a con woman played by Blake Lively. Life on the road is tough, unless you’re smarter than everyone else.
