Book of Henry

I wanted to love this film, i wanted to adore this film, yet Collin Trevorrow's return to small scale filmmaking simply failed. I wanted another Safety Not Guaranteed, i mean, i know the plot wouldn't be the same, but a film where you leave and think, wow, this guy has it. Perhaps balancing Jurassic World and Episode IX was too much, i loved Jurassic, so perhaps his talent is in blockbusters. It has a great cast, yet all the roles seem flat. It is oscar bait, yet oscar bait so needy that it tries so hard and fails that recovery is damn near impossible.
