Children abide (or don’t) in this week’s new movie releases, including The Florida Project and Goodbye Christopher Robin
Matthew Lickona 3 p.m., Oct. 20
Griff (Ryan Kwanten) is a bullied Australian nerd who finds relief as a suited superhero in dark alleys. He meets a brainy nerdette (Maeve Dermody), and their romance comes into focus as they work on becoming invisible. The stars are okay, the effects are quaint, but writer-director Leon Ford depends too much on the music track, and his reach for a romantic fable of misunderstood loners turns into a puddle of warm drool. 2011.
