The thing I like most in a movie is when it takes a spectacular turn into the unanticipated or unexpected. The Book Of Henry is just such a film, filled with the best twists and turns I’ve seen in a very long time. It’s also a darn good family drama that accompanies its theme with some very exciting suspense thriller elements.
It’s this brotherly relationship, the way it plays out, and how they interface with the world around them that traps you comfortably into the story. It’s something to behold.
So my take… the film is a true winner. It’s a not-to-be missed sentimental drama in the best sense of the word, which will have you laughing one minute and crying the next. See it by all means.
