I love this movie. It does to Lillian, Ohio what Jaws did with Amity - it just makes you want to spend time there. The adult characters are really only there for set-dressing as it spends almost all its time with the kids, and they are so good in this. Someone once told me that a good child-actor performance is a direct reflection of the skills of the movie's director. If that's truly the case, then JJ Abrams is a master.
Blimey. I'd heard only good things about this and, boy, it didn't disappoint. Maybe my favourite film from the last three or four years. The subject matter, style and production design are right up my street. It paints a conceivable future and shows its potential pitfalls at the same time as making it pretty appealing. Despite this incredibly cautionary tale, I found myself wanting a disembodied Scarlett Johansson in my phone (who wouldn't, right?).
My only thought that might be…
