Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): It looks like a cheap tween romantic drama that feels more abusive than sensible.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Sappy romance will not turn Ralph and Joseph Fiennes’ nephew into England’s next big thing.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The trailer certainly does not make the characters interesting nor shows why we should care about them.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): The trailer suggests a rather commonplace concept, but one couldn’t help but be impressed by the talent involved.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Despite his dominance in the trailer, Mick Jagger is only in two scenes of what looks to be an overheated thriller.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The trailer tries too hard to be mysterious and the reviews are not that kind, but it looks better than most films that have been released lately. I would see it.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): A lame comedy about getting old for thirtysomethings.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Lame looking comedy doesn’t appear to have much going for it.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): I liked Gillian Jacobs in Community, but I am not sure that this comedy is good enough to help her in the movies. It looks cute but not much more than that.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): This hackneyed story concept isn’t improved by the trailer, which makes it look like it’s trying too hard.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Another star from the Redgrave dynasty is born – great location and an acting showcase for Liam Neeson and his son Micheàl Richardson.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): I have a feeling this will be a cliched father and son bonding film with lots of quirky projects as they try to fix up an old villa.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): It might be interesting, but the trailer does not convince anyone of that.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Internationally acclaimed Norwegian film from a celebrated novel could have been an arthouse hit in less scary times.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The premise makes it sound interesting, but a trailer that jumps back and forth in time without revealing much does it no favors.
