Review: (#1) Lots of reading to do here and that’s not as appealing as some think and it most certainly doesn’t get audiences enthused. (#2) A dull backdrop and thrown-in figures make the design look utterly cheap.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: There’s a charm and sweetness about the film that almost comes through in the trailer, but after an initial set-up, it seems to want to throw everything at the wall and hope it sticks, muddying the waters of interest.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
