Sorry, about the third time I heard Jodie Foster squacking chick-a-pea and I realized Liam Neeson wasn't doing a full frontal scene, I left the theatre. I mean, I bore easily, and this didn't have anything to hold my interest. Jodie has two Oscars, which is better than me, so she really didn't need a vote for this. I thought it was a turkey. Anyway, Patricia Neal does a REALLY good imitation of the language in this and it's really funny and degrading, but obviously, it doesn't translate well onto a message board and it is between us girls.
From what I recall about the previews, the mother had had a stroke and she and the two daughters developed their own language based on how the stroke woman talked because Jodie wasn't exposed to the real world, so her language was the stroke language of the mother. I remember, the sister died, but I can't remember the details. She either tripped in the forest or croaked of natural causes and they tossed her into the forest.
