Sometimes things are not always what they seem, especially in the small suburban town where the Carpenter family lives. Single suburban mother Susan Carpenter works as a waitress at a diner, alongside feisty family friend Sheila. Her younger son Peter is a playful 8-year-old. Taking care of everyone and everything in his own unique way is Susan's older son Henry, age 11. Protector to his adoring younger brother and tireless supporter of his often self-doubting mother - and, through investments, of the family as a whole - Henry blazes through the days like a comet. Susan discovers that the family next door, which includes Henry's kind classmate Christina, has a dangerous secret - and that Henry has devised a surprising plan to help. As his brainstormed rescue plan for Christina takes shape in thrilling ways, Susan finds herself at the center of it. Written by
I gave it a 9, but it's actually a soft 8...still pretty good with all the crap that's out there. Naomi Watts, amazing, as per usual. Sarah Silverman, amazing, as per usual, altho her role was much smaller. Maddie Ziegler, never heard of her, very nice job doing the understated stuff of abused but trying to hide. Jacob Tremblay, good in Room (great movie, btw), fantastic here. The ending falters, I think if they'd extended the movie by 35 mins, they'd have had the room to flesh things out a bit. You won't be sorry you spent the time to watch it.
