I enjoyed it, but didn't find it that funny!!!!
The performances from the leads - Willis, Norton, Swinton and Murray are rather sublime but it's the strangely enigmatic acting from the 'young newbies' Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward that steal the show as two pubescent children taking comfort and solace in each others company as they escape the strangeness of their lives. Pursued by their respective so-called "responsible adults", (that's the funny bit, I suppose?), they desperately try to find consolation in an effort to make some sense out of their muddled lives.
I had to watch it three times before I could come to a conclusion - it is a good film; in my opinion a very thought provoking one.
Perhaps I took it too seriously? However, I found it hard not too!
Good film - not what I expected, but I think I got much more out of it because of this.
So much to enjoy - chuckling now remembering the conversations the young lass has with her mother & the way it was played - just great. & super quality.
A film that has stuck with us as a great experience & unlike so many that have been enjoyed & then just stuck on the shelf this has come off to be watched & really enjoyed again. Definately recommend it.
Newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward are well cast as the alternative `star cross'd lovers', whilst top actors including Bruce Willis as deceptively shy police chief, Ed Norton as an insecure Scout master with hidden depths, and Tilda Swinton as a ruthless Social Worker, are imaginatively deployed and contribute to an affecting and hugely enjoyable film, which only occasionally strays into the ridiculous.
Funny but poignant. A great cast. The young actors holding their own alongside the more famous actors.
Engaging at all times. Again, each scene is an individual work of art. The soundtrack sews the film together.
Another movie to watch more than once.
