Right from the start you'll know that Everything's Eventual something special...
11 July 2010 | by de_hakkelaarSee all my reviews

Many King readers know by now that King makes a special deal with amateur/student filmmakers. For a symbolic $1 they can adapt a Stephen King short story to film as a so called "Dollar Baby". These films can only be exhibited at school presentations and/or film festivals and may not be commercially distributed. Most amateur filmmakers who make a dollar baby create a mediocre film with a minimal budget. But every now and then a very talented filmmaker stands up to create a true masterpiece. J.P. Scott, who adapted the story "Everything's Eventual", did just that. J.P. showed his film to King, who was very impressed by the film. So much in fact that he offered J.P. the chance distribute the film theatrically. Furthermore, King gave the film to 3 major distributors to consider the film, including Summit, Overture and Lion's Gate. Unfortunately, all three decided not to release the film in cinema's, which means the film can now only be seen at film festivals around the world.

My opinion: Right from the start you'll know that Everything's Eventual is something special. The beautiful images, the fine acting and especially the ominous music make this a film that is expected of most Hollywood-King films. Stephen King's story is followed pretty closely, but isn't told in the same order. Also, a couple of subplots have been added to the story. Especially Pug, an old childhood friend of Dinky's, plays an important role in the film, where the short story only mentions him a couple of times. Add this to the fact that this is the first dollar baby to be feature length, it really gives you the feeling you're watching a Hollywood movie. My only comment to the film is that the acting is not quite up to par in a couple of scenes: it's really not that big of a deal though. Should you get the chance to see the film somewhere, be sure to do so! I promise you won't regret it.

Ending score: 8.5
