Just dreadful...
13 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

When children are the lead characters and have to carry a movie, they need to be able to act. These children cannot and completely tank this film. They are as emotionless as cardboard and even though there is little dialogue, what dialogue there is, isn't delivered with any sort of depth. It's a silent film, wrapped in a musical which is trying to be a period piece, that has no focus. The story itself is quite flimsy and there's not enough story to warrant a 2 hour rambling, aimless film. I found the soundtrack to be overwrought and predictable. Wizard of Oz used the black and white vs. color thing way better. Julie and Julia used cutting between two time periods better. It's a wanna be film in every aspect of it's delusion.
