Eh, it was a little bit too “dramatic novel” and there was a little too much scene chewing by Eva Green. There were also two abrupt shifts in perspective–one of which explained a key plot point–that were confusing.* Although this also has a female who is in charge of her sexuality with none of the usual consequences, so that was a plus.**
Cost: free from library.
Where watched. At home. Film 2 of 3 of today’s scheduled Movie Palooza.
*If 98% of the movie is from the main character’s perspective, and two scenes aren’t, does that mean the main character doesn’t know those scenes have happened and thus doesn’t know that key plot reveal?
**Also, much like Jennifer Lawrence, Shailene Woodley is fun to watch.
