Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
This movie is about a young orphan girl who just happens to come across a hypnotizing book. She hypnotizes her way onto a London show and becomes rich and famous. But she loses her best friend due to her lack of attention yowards him. And a man also wants her book. He tracks her all the way to London and takes her dog. In order to get it back, she must help him steal the plunder from some robbers just after they robbed the richest bank in London of all its jewels.
This is aimed at kids obviously and I have not read the books this is based on. But you get a pretty good idea, what it's about (the character and everything). It's a shame it wasn't successful, because it's lighthearted fun with a terrific cast. You can tell everyone was having a blast making this.
It's predictable and the characters are very easily to spot, but you don't always need complex stuff to be entertained. It's also enough to watch this with a kid (maybe not even a fan of the books) and having a blast with them. It's overall effort is more than decent and if you allow yourself to dive into this world (just don't look too long into her eyes), then you'll be entertained
