New from The Movie Snob
December Boys (B-). My cousin dragged me to this little movie starring Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame. It’s set in Australia in the 1960’s. Four orphans at a boys’ orphanage run by nuns get to take a holiday at a seaside village. They stay with a kindly older married couple. The oldest (Radcliffe) discovers girls, or at least one girl named Lucy (Teresa Palmer, Warm Bodies). The other three are caught up in the possibility that a young childless couple in the village might adopt one of them. It’s a pleasant enough little movie, although my cousin was outraged by a theological atrocity committed at the very end.
