Dakota Fanning believes her new film will make people want to ''make their life matter''.
The 'Twilight Saga' actress thinks that while her new film 'Now Is Good' isn't the most uplifting story, it makes viewers think about their own lives which is all down to director Ol Parker.
She said: ''I think it's all in the way Ol avoids the obvious. Even though the movie's sad at times, Ol doesn't push you to cry.
''When you leave, you're upset, and at the same time it makes you want to make your life matter.''
The 18-year-old star has frequently been described as wise beyond her years and has taken on some risky roles, but she took offence to criticism about portraying a 12-year-old rape victim in 'Hounddog'.
She added: ''The negative attention made me feel I'd done something wrong. The point of the movie is that she thinks she's responsible.
''This is what victims can feel. I hope it didn't stifle anyone, because 'Hounddog' is about finding your voice after going through something awful. This is why we did the movie, damn it!''
