Random 🎲 Arnold’s review published on Letterboxd:
Film #4 from Scavenger Hunt 50
Task 17. Watch a film adapted from a YA novel
Now, I appreciate that I am no-longer a YA (not by several decades) so would not be considered the target audience for this. But regardless of that I have to say this seems to be a pretty poor affair. The production put me in mind of the kids drama series on TV from when was a YA back in the 70's and 80's ('The Changes' anyone? Anyone? 'Tripods'?). Not that I'm dismissing such shows. I still maintain that 'Children of the Stones' was a landmark in television history ('Children of the Stones'? Anyone?!?!). It's just that I somehow expected more from a post Millennium movie.
