The Book of Henry is a catastrophically awful film. Everyone should see it
It had the star-wattage and the slick presentation, the money behind it, the talent on screen, the entire infrastructure of a major studio available to keep everything on course, and you have to wonder why The Book of Henry went so catastrophically wrong. Because this fiasco is Razzie -bound and no fooling. The acting is tone-deaf, the cast works without an ounce of organic cohesion or conviction, emotions are either ersatz or unearned. To borrow from Hunter S Thompson on Richard Nixon, it is a triumph of the twisted gene and the broken chromosome, misconceived at a molecular-genetic level, ruined in the womb, born dead. Everything about it is lazy and ill-wrought. Its central figure is that most tiresome trope, the year-old child genius Henry, played by Jaeden Lieberher , as lazy a short-cut narrative device as Google and the smartphone.
