Sucker Punch, one of the rare movies with a female lead, and hero, told with female sensibilities. I thought it was like a steampunk "Girl, interrupted" but my wife, who loved that one, hated "Sucker Punch", even though I had the opposite reaction.
Story telling thought the eyes of a disturbed protagonist is not new, but this one takes you a level deeper into her survival mechanism, vividly brought to life via flashback or fantasy episodes.
I thought this movie told a disturbing story, and well, with delicacy and finesse, and without graphic or violent visuals.
