The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

Bruno (Asa Butterfield) is a young boy living in Berlin in 1942 with his well-to-do family. But soon the family is forced to move to Poland due to his Father's (David Thewlis) promotion at the Krakow concentration camp.

There Bruno meets and befriends a young Jewish boy being held in the camp. Their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.

"While the film is relatively faithful to the original novel, many details have been altered. Director Mark Herman keeps it simple, omitting many elements, while making Bruno's innocence the central focus. The process of discovery by the reader as Bruno begins to learn more about the real world is lost in the film adaptation, making it more difficult for the viewer to relate to Bruno. Although the simple storytelling works, it could have included many more details."

Oozing with bad science, Lucy is a forgettable bad sci-fi which pretends to be something more. Read More »
