Serious Jest: (Worth Watching) The less you know about this movie going in, the better. Is it a spy flick? Supernatural? Psychological? Medical? The plot is engaging and entertaining, and the acting is well-executed. I wouldn’t call this film a must-see, but it’s definitely worth the time to watch if you’re searching your HBO On-Demand for movies to watch. I imagine that the book is better, because the movie’s biggest weakness is that it didn’t seem to have enough time to develop its characters adequately.
