Mr. Leon and company ALMOST made a good film.

Production quality is very strong. Oregon woods, shot exceptionally well. Drone filming, static scenery, lots of natural light. Continuity smooth. Comfortable editing.

However, the pace is slow. The script is tolerable. The delivery, by actors who may have wanted to do more, is plodding and tone deaf. "Prodigy" is like a well produced (technically), long, student film.

As in another review here, "Midnight Run" meets "Knowing" at a sermon.
