Paradox - odd film, very well done technically, still very odd
29 December 2014 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Strange films make for strange reviews.

Robertson is actually in her mid-20s but in this adaptation she plays younger (ie, a teenager, clues are in the script if you listen) and that becomes a cheat of sorts.

The script based on book about how adolescent girls get "confused" by the digital age we live in, has a lot of plot arcs about cheating, so cheating is clearly a theme here, or at least a sub-theme.

The direction follows the vibe of Easy A, or Ferris Bueller, where the young person appears (initially) to be the smartest person in the film (possibly on the planet?) and the constant voice-over only adds to that impression.

I did not read the book. Those reviewers that did say that the lessons and morals from the book do not translate well onto the big screen.

I will concede the point to them.

Robertson, aside from playing younger, is also DDG (drop dead gorgeous) and seems to have gone to the Emma Roberts School of Acting. While she is not a physical match for Roberts, she mugs and struts and double-takes and pouts in the exact same rhythm, so the effect is (see the heading for the review) odd.

The other casting choices are also odd. Big names (Martin Sheen, Justin Long) drop by to play forgettable parts. Very odd.

The technicals are outstanding.
