Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay.
Why should I watch it?
+ Oscar nominated performance by Brie Larson
+ The kid’s acting isn’t too bad either
+ Great story
+ Moving at times
+ Feels real
+ A kid’s naive and innocent views of the world
+ Brings up interesting psychological subjects
+ Media exploiting tragedy
Why shouldn’t I watch it?
– Slows down a little bit halfway in
– Based on a book, so the book is automatically better
– Support arguments made by anti-abortionists
It’s much better going into this movie not knowing what it is about. Don’t watch the trailer because, like Kim Kardashian, it shows waaaay too much than it should. One of my top films of 2015.
