Kid's movie level plot, somewhat made up for by the luscious locations and costumes.
Predictable and derivative, weak performance from the lead playing Jamal, average from Connery. This is a poor man's Good Will Hunting - ironically with Matt Damon popping up for a cameo at the end and reminding you you should be watching a better movie.
This is worth the hype - Phoenix's performance was as good as expected (perhaps apart from forgetting whether he was playing camp or weird in the chat show!), direction was great and the plot respected canon. Decisively dark and limited action, so not for everyone's tastes. I liked the timely thought provoking exploration of what happens when society fails to provide opportunities for young working class, and care for those suffering depression and mental illness.
Good stuff - great performances from the mini star (Mckenna Grace - one to watch), Evans and the grandmother (Lindsay Duncan), and manages to tell a touching story without too much cheddar 👌
