American Fable 2016
1h 36min | Thriller | 17 February 2017 (USA)
After 11-year-old Gitty discovers a man who can grant wishes hiding in her family’s silo, she is forced to choose between saving the man’s life and protecting her family.
I feel like the rating for this movie should be much higher than it is, considering how original and interesting the plot was. Sure there were fantasy elements, and things that made you question reality, but it didn’t take away from the film as a whole.
I enjoyed this movie from beginning to end. Peyton Kennedy blew me away and made me want to see her in just about anything else. Children really are such natural actors. She is the main reason people should see this film and enjoy it more than they may have otherwise. I really liked the way the script played with good & evil, similarly to what Christopher Nolan likes to do. I would watch this again, and certainly watch more like this.
