| Ah Yes! The In Between.
Having not read the much lauded novel, I have no frame of reference about this filmic adaptation. The charges of style over substance I sort of understand, it sometimes dose feel like Peter Jackson showing off, but then again he is good at it and produces some stunning sequences here. As a story and how it is told becomes an emotional roller-coaster, a shattering tale of grief and anguish, of hope and peace, and judgement. All told by a cast on fire, giving intensity and sincerity at all the right junctures.

It's one of those films where you understand if someone detests it, it very much is a specialist film hoping to find someone to love it. It's too long at 2hr 15mins, but if it does grab you? It sure wont let go. 8/10
