Penn, a student at Sword & Cross, is an office aid and goes out of her way early in the movie to let Luce know that she has access to all the students' records. Later, she admits to having read Luce's file, but then not long afterward, she's surprised to find out the previous day was Luce's birthday. If she had read Luce's file, then it seems unlikely she wouldn't have known about Luce's birthday. See more »

Book to movie adaptations usually aren't fantastic so I had low expectations for this movie. At the beginning it looked like I was going to end up pleased. The characters were enjoyable, Arriane was exciting and I was looking forward to seeing some more character development with her, as I was with Roland, and Cam, and Molly, and.... honestly every other character in the movie, with the exception of Luce. But it didn't come, even Cam got a maximum of 20 minutes of screen time, Roland was probably there for about 5 minutes and said a total of about 10 words and a few "wooo"'s. This movie honestly needed to be another 30 minutes at least, not to mention cutting out some of Luces brooding. I had low expectations already, but once I got to the end they were even lower. It had so much potential and unfortunately most of the movie was Luce and Daniel brooding which wouldn't have been a problem if there had've been an extra 30 minutes of jam packed action at the end involving all the other characters. This wasn't the case at all, and the ending totally ruined the entire movie. I still had hope for this movie at this point, and I was looking forward to seeing some actual conversations between a few of the characters, and it just ended. Obviously this is only the first book, but I have doubts about another movie being made, and I really don't think that was a satisfying ending. A real shame because I think there was so much potential, especially if the post processing had've been better. A lot of the time the words didn't match the scene on the screen. Super irritating and definitely made the movie feel unprofessional.
TLDR; Hardly any character interactions, supporting characters just stood there in the background of classrooms, total brood-fest of Luce and Daniel, at least 30 minutes too short, unprofessional post processing
