High school student Emma (Kelsey Zukowski) seems to have the perfect life: She really gets along fine with her parents (Michael Wexler, Valerie Meachum), has a nice and understanding boyfriend, Landon (Myke Wilson), and a best friend, Miles (Michael Dilacova), who's always there for her. And then someone at school starts the rumour that she's abused by her father, and everything goes to shambles - and the problem is not so much that her father's suddenly getting a bad reputation, undeservedly, but that many don't even see her as victim but as superslut for doing it with her father (which she didn't).

There's another layer to the problem though: After a while, Emma isn't even able anymore to either ignore the rumours or fight back, they take over her mind, and she can't look her father in the eyes anymore without seeing him as the dirty old man he isn't, and when having sex with Landon she fantasizes about doing it with her father - which positively freaks Landon out.

There's just one thing to do of course, face the source of all these rumours, school bitch Madison (Melissa Revels) head-on - something that ... well, let's just say someone does get hurt.


Running a mere 20 minutes, Words Like Knives is an incredibly powerful film, basically because it doesn't give its topic the TV Movie of the Week-treatment that simplifies the story until everybody can agree on the message and there are clear lines between villain and victim, good and evil. Instead, Words Like Knives twists and turns through its intentionally problematic and uncomfortable story without shying away from anything much (and yes, there's even quite a bit of gore in the finale), helped by a directorial effort that does focus first and foremost on creating just the right atmosphere, and a hauntingly powerful performance by Kelsey Zukowski, who also wrote the script for this one.

Totally recommended!
