The Honor Farm Review [SXSW 2017]

13 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Some of you will Love The Honor Farm. Let me start by saying that. A prom-night virgin plans her perfect deflowering, only to have carefully-laid plans ruined by drunkenness and the night’s “haunted” escape. It’s a tale of choices, and not being forced into an idealistic “normality.” One illuminated by director Karen Skloss’ ability to capture a full moon’s glow upon backwoods forestation. Very art-house heavy, getting caught up in poetic discussions about “now” being the only moment that will ever matter. “The past is forgotten and the future is unknown.” True about futures, but good luck “forgetting” the lack of completion that devalues The Honor Farm beyond lusty teenage daydreams (beautiful hallucinations, admittedly).

Olivia Grace Applegate stars as Lucy, a cheery teenager with romanticized hopes for prom. Take pictures, dance happily and go all the way with your high school sweetheart. The right of passage so many endure. »

A Series of Unfortunate Events: Netflix lets its freak flag fly

10 January 2017 4:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

After a disappointing Hollywood adaptation, the streaming giant takes on the curious world of Lemony Snicket – and the result is a daring, offbeat treat

Of all the high-profile non-starters of Hollywood’s franchise age, few have had as much going for them as 2004’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events, adapted from the hit children’s books by Lemony Snicket, fictional alter ego of author Daniel Handler. Costing an outrageous $140m (more than that year’s Harry Potter entry), the film brought old-school sets, costumes and practical effects to a saga already steeped in cinematic intrigue, and introduced Liam Aiken and Emily Browning – perhaps the least annoying child stars of their generation – as the orphaned Klaus and Violet Baudelaire, the series’ industrious heroes.

It coped less well however with the demands of bringing a winding narrative serialised across 13 novels to the screen. Drawing on events from the first three books, the »
