The cinematic adaptation of Margaret Mahy’s novel The Changeover has just hit the big screen here – a film shot in Mahy’s hometown of Christchurch.
From the opening few frames of this film its haunting topic have an effect on seeps into the consciousness and in my exploit, did not permit go.
Teenager Laura Chant spends most of her times after school taking care of her tiny brother Jacko even if her mum (Melanie Lynskey) works.
When they meet a obscure man (Timothy Spall) breathing in the toting up-quake ruins, Laura’s senses are set stop – and not in a innocent way.
And as vigilant as she is, protecting her artificial brother will become the hardest and most confronting event she will ever realize.
Laura will compulsion all the benefit she can make a gain of to save her intimates together and an inexplicable association following a handsome prefect at her theoretical will bring every one heavens of uncertain emotions.
Not everything is as it appears.
I found this film intensely immersive and affecting, and no ask we are witnessing the birth of a definite star in teenager newcomer Erana James.
The class of Spall adds choice total onto what’s already an impressive directorial debut for Miranda Harcourt and Stuart McKenzie.
