This film started with a 4-star rating, but as the plot progressed, it dwindled down to the current 2. The story starts with promise: Naomi Watts plays a single mom to 2 boys, one of whom has a precocious intellect. The 2 young actors make the movie: Jaeden Lieberher (“St. Vincent”) and Jacob Tremblay (“Room”) both turn in impressively deep and touching performances. Once the family’s warm, spunky relationship is established, the unpleasant activities next door cast gloom over their happiness. After an unfortunate twist, the plot deteriorates into an implausible scheme with gaping gaps in the logic. Ultimately, what started as a compelling drama fails with a wimpy ending.


2 out of 5 stars (2 / 5)
