Rate: *** 1/2
Gus Van Sant’s latest ode to youth takes a decidedly somber turn, chronicling the love between troubled teen Enoch and terminally ill Annabel (Mia Wasikowska) who meet at a memorial service. The film is definitely moving — though with subject matter like this it would take a pretty artless hand to make it anything but — and Wasikowska turns in yet another sweet and nuanced performance.
