I was expecting more from this movie, but I still liked it. It's funny, relatable and even smart at times, but nothing out of this world. They do a great job of portraying an introverted boy, even if Liam James' acting is not the best. I liked the role of the mother and you could see that she was a complicated and tridimensional character, but I wished they would explore that a little bit more because it stayed in a limbo between a superficial pointless drama and a well rounded character study. Special mention to Allison Janney, Sam Rockwell and AnnaSophia Robb for their great performances in secondary roles.
