Full Review Page

This film chronicles the life of Sidney Hall (Logan Lerman), a loner with serious writing skills and how he catapults into success and ultimately disappears from the face of the earth while he is tracked down by a mystery man (Kyle Chandler). I love how the film jumps back and forth from his childhood to the present as each piece of the puzzle that’s presented to us gives us a better understanding of Sidney’s life and what lead him to his choices. Wonderful cast with strong performances all around that includes classmate Brett Newport (Blake Jenner) and Sidney’s love interest, Melody (Elle Fanning). But really, this is Logan Lerman’s film as he embodies the necessary ingredients in bringing Sidney to life with total conviction as one can’t help but be moved with the journey his life takes. It can feel and most probably is a tear jerker but I believe this film makes one appreciate to be alive and that’s a great thing for a film to leave you with once the final credits has rolled. Don’t you think so?
