Don’t Tell A Soul – Drama, Thriller
Category – Movie
Content – When Matt convinces his younger brother Joey to rob this old lady’s house, they are shocked to see a security guard upon leaving. As the security guard chases the two boys to stop them, he accidently falls down a well. So the boys are safe and can go about their lives, robbery successful. But…Joey has a conscience and fears for the security guard. He goes back to see if the man is OK, learns his name is Hamby and begins to develop conversation. Joey genuinely feels bad that Hamby is stuck down a well, but if Matt finds out he is helping the man, it could be the end to Joey. As the movie plays out, there are so many twists and turns that I did not see coming. The writers definitely did a great job with surprising details. I cannot say too much, as I don’t want to spoil the movie, except to say that you will NOT see certain things coming in this film! Which is a job well done! This scores a 8 out of 10.
Acting – Jack Dylan Grazer, from IT fame, does a good job in this movie. He is growing up and becoming a good actor to watch. His emotions are all over the map in this movie – caring, fearful, ambitious and naïve. He really did a good job portraying all of these emotions with ease. And his brother Matt is played by Fionn Whitehead. Another good performance, Fionn plays the domineering brother well. He has several angry outburst scenes that are acted out great. And to my surprise, Hamby in played by Rainn Wilson. I say surprise because Rainn did an excellent job! He was believable as Hamby, even though Hamby may not be what he seems. Score is 8 out of 10.
Duration – 83 mins. Yep, not even an hour and a half. This movie moves quick and definitely keeps you on your toes. The last three quarters of the movie will definitely keep your eyebrows moving up, with all the shocking twists! This gets a 8 out of 10.
