Excellent performance, great topic, but overall an underwhelming story
Writer/director Peter Hedges did a better job on his 4th directorial film than he did with his story. The 103 min length was decent, but the pacing felt really slow and lacked any luster or peaks in its screenplay. The message was strong and powerful, but I think it was under-emphasized and too typical to get a powerful message across, well, powerfully. The casting was great and all performances were very convincing. This film is certainly a must see to open the eyes of society on how addition can destroy many lives, not just the person addicted. Would I recommend it? Yes. Would I see it again? No, it lacked that luster and oomph for me to want to see it again. It’s a 7/10 from me.
I really wanted to like this movie. I think Lucas Hedges is a terrific young actor, but by the end I was almost laughing at – what ridiculous thing is going to happen next? OF COURSE Courtney B. Vance is going to be content to just sit at home and wait for Julia Roberts to call and lie to him every few hours. OF COURSE Ivy knows that everything Julia is telling her is B.S. OF COURSE Julia Roberts is going to, just coincidentally, run into Lucas’ junkie friend who a) happens to be going through withdrawal and b) just happens to know where to find Lucas. And – OF COURSE – Lucas is going to O.D. and Julia is going to find him just in the nick of time and OF COURSE she will have that Epipen that the other mother gave her (and OF COURSE she kept it around after the death of her daughter). Yeah – check out “Boy Erased” if you want to see a movie starring Lucas Hedges that won’t make you groan and laugh out loud.
