    Dear Evan Hansen

    ★★★

    Ben Platt is normally a good-looking man (and a terrific singer), but his attempt to appear as a young teenager has him looking like some kind of cg gnome from the uncanny valley. In order for this story to work, you need to feel a lot of empathy for Evan Hansen even as he does very stupid, bad things, and that’s definitely made harder by Platt’s distracting look and awkward performance. 

    The songs are total bangers, though! And Julianne Moore, Amy Adams, and Kaitlyn Dever do great work.

    What do we call this genre? Dadsploitation?

    The action in this is pretty entertaining, but the story about the sad dad who needs to kill a whole bunch of evil Russians so that his family will respect him again didn’t do much for me.
