I enjoy reading short stories. They are compact and pack a punch. As a reader, a realistic, even melancholy story resonates with me. So when I came across this collection of short stories at my local library it didn't take much convincing for me to borrow.
Ok, so no reader will like each and every story in a compilation. Nonetheless, I expected more from such an exalted collection.
To be sure, there were a several standouts which made reading the entire book worthwhile. The collection is noticea I enjoy reading short stories.
The collection is noticeable for another reason, the geographical breadth of the authors. While all stories must be written originally in English quite a few are set in non-English speaking countries such as Laos, Turkey, etc.
His mother, played by Naomi Watts, is a mostly irresponsible and borderline lazy womanchild who prefers to play Gears of War and drink with her best friend, Sarah Silverman.
Therefore, Henry raises his younger brother and grows up with his mother. Oh, and he builds elaborates Rube Goldberg machines because that equates "mad genius" in movie language.
Then, randomly halfway through the movie, Henry's case of "movie genius syndrome" produces a tumor that puts him in a hospital for two weeks and fucking kills him.
But not before the eleven-year-old gets to make out with Sarah Silverman. With our protagonist now dead, Naomi Watts discovers a message left behind by Henry.
It turns out that that the chief of police next door Dean Norris is molesting his step daughter and our precocious child hero had uncovered the truth and was devising a plan all along.
He encourages his mother to fucking assassinate this public official using money and instructions he has left behind.
Naomi Watts AGREES to this idiotic plan and does the business of preparing for the deed by purchasing a high-powered sniper rifle and practicing in the backyard, shooting literally 40 feet away from her intended victim.
And this is all to the backdrop of an impending grade school talent show because this is a fuckin family movie, goddamn it. Now why the hell did I just tell you the "plot" of this movie?
Because it's so goddamn bizarre that you would not believe how utterly retarded The Book of Henry was, if I didn't tell you this bullshit that someone actually got paid to write.
Colin Trevorrow was successful in making both cute indy comedy Safety Not Guaranteed and bloated mega-blockbuster Jurassic World work wonders with extremely archetypal characters.
But he is so disinterested here that every shot looks flat, boring, and lifeless. It is perhaps the worst looking movie I have seen in a couple of years.
Naomi Watts deserves credit for making the maudlin moments of the film work, especially regarding Henry's death and the finale, but she's the only one.
Every other character is irritating, strange, and inhuman. Like fucking aliens wanted to make a small family drama with a bit of a twist but instead shoved together material from three different genres and gave us a howler for the ages.
Joshua S Super Reviewer. Jul 27, The Book of Henry is full of suspense, thrills, laughs, and a whole ton of other emotions; emotions that run the gamut of the extremes of all those descriptors that were just tossed out in hopes of giving you, the reader, a comprehensive list of the feelings you might experience while watching this mish-mash of a movie.
At its heart, The Book of Henry is a movie that yearns to be comfortable in its aesthetic-it's one of those familial tales that takes place in the prime of fall when both the trees and ground are littered with orange and yellow leaves.
Reinforcing this even further is the piano-driven score from Michael Giacchino that mixes in so many household items to seemingly make so many of the sounds that it can't help but to feel that much more homey.
The Book of Henry is also a movie that first emphasizes the comfort levels of its characters as well.
In the beginning the Carpenter clan, made up of mother Susan Naomi Watts , genius son Henry Jaeden Lieberher , and younger brother Peter Jacob Tremblay , are each very set in their roles and rather content with the way their lives are moving.
That said, though the dynamic is familiar and functional for the time being that doesn't necessarily make it constructive. There is an immediate sense of something being off about how this dynamic between a mother and her sons came to be.
It isn't that Henry manages the family finances or takes care of meals, or even that he seems to know how to better handle the emotional highs and lows his younger brother is dealing with at school, but rather that Susan is bad at all of it.
It's understandable that, as a single parent, you might allow your genius kid to make you some extra cash playing the stocks or that, given the close age between Henry and Peter, the two of them might more productively work through issues without involving their out of touch mother, but Susan is a straight-up child herself and it's both weird and off-putting in too many ways to mention.
Of course, while it feels as if Watts' character never learned how to be a mom in the first place the fact of the matter is she seemingly never had the chance to raise actual children-or at least kids who hold the average mental capacity of children.
By default, Peter is automatically more grown-up, more aware, and more insightful due to the impressions Henry leaves on him and so when this wild ride of a movie shifts tones in one of the more drastic ways I've ever seen-it leaves a meteor-sized hole in the middle of these relationships that were never really prepared for change.
And so, while the movie wants to make you feel all warm and fuzzy in its familiarity it simultaneously wants to talk about change, accepting change, and dealing with it.
Bottom line is The Book of Henry doesn't seem to fully know what it wants to be, but it exists and it makes some interesting and touching statements if not ultimately pulling at the heart strings in the way that it desperately wants to.
Philip P Super Reviewer. Jun 26, The Book of Henry is an innovative drama that both brings smiles and pulls on your heart strings.
At first I thought this was going to be a child friendly family film, then the second act arrives and it just hits you.
This is incredibly smart! I mean sure, Henry himself is a child genius but the film's inner dynamics is very refreshing to watch. How Henry, a child, is the adult and more respectable role in the family and his mother is playing video games and not worrying about financial documents.
This role reversal is well explored, so I was pretty happy. The problem is I can't really say too much about the last two acts way too many spoilers , but the film changes and transforms from a family film to a more mature adult viewing.
When I say mature, I mean it is ridiculously heavy Then the film changes again and starts to become a thriller, whilst still tackling mature themes such as child abuse.
Whilst these are all perfectly acceptable, the sudden changes were jarring and the tonal inconsistencies did disrupt the narrative.
It's a shame because the intent for innovation and originality was there, but it just didn't quite hit the mark. Colin Trevorrow made a suitable transition from blockbuster Jurassic World to a smaller drama, his camera shots were clean although nothing outstanding.
The acting though, oh yes. I have a little place in my heart for Naomi Watts and she was really good as the mother who's character transforms dramatically.
This showcases her acting chops and solidifies her as an exquisite actress. Jaedan Lieberher plays Henry, he executes his lines with precision and has that sarcastic wit that a self-proclaimed genius would have.
I enjoyed his performance. Jacob Tremblay once again proves he is Hollywood's best child actor right now, he really is the heart of the film. So the story and acting was great, just the sudden changes in genre prevented this from being a powerful drama.
It tried to be everything instead of focussing on one genre. Luke A Super Reviewer. See all Audience reviews.

The plot of this movie is intricate but accessible, the writing and the acting are superb, especially the performance by Naomi Watts She never disappoints So you may be wondering why I didn't give it five stars?
