Actors learn their craft at out expense. 5 Stars for Film School
on March 11, 2015
I like to watch early movies of actors and actresses before they were anyone, and this 2011 movie fills the bill. Lawrence really needs direction, she often brings it on her own, but some of her scenes, especially the ones where she acts "concerned" or "making it" with the male lead are really bad --there's just no chemistry there. It's good to see Therioux (?) work pre Bates Motel, if this predated same, it surely helped him get the gig.
But all the protagonist "teenagers" have more maturity than college grads, it just doesn't sell the fact that these are supposed to be kids. Kids who actually wind up being "right" all along, I may add.
All the characters and the actors that portrayed them, is let down by a script with more plotholes than NY potholes after a freak snow storm.
So the five stars are for the film buffs out there. Your next "requirement" people, is to screen Serena. Lawrence did that "weepie" after this "creepie". Get to it.
