Weird, very weird
Probably One And Two would be consigned to obscurity save for the fact that
one of the four principal cast member Timothee Chalamet has gone on to stardom in the movie big leagues. Chalamet and Kiernan Shipka play a brother
and sister who live on a remote farm and have some unusual abilities, abilities
inherited from their mother Elizabeth Reaser who is subject to seizures and not
long for the world.
His own kids scare the pants off their father Grant Bowler who punishes them
every time they use their powers to transport themselves. The idea was
clearly taken from the British science fiction series The Tomorrow People where
kids could just transport themselves anywhere on a whim.
An interesting concept but the film moves so slowly it becomes unbearably
dull. In the end I'm not sure what the point was.
