|WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO GO TO THAT PARTY? A TERRIFIED KID, THAT'S WHO.|
He's still an asshole, but at least he's trying. The quest for redemption ensues.
|TRY HARDER, JAMES. THERE'S A CLOCK ON THIS SHIT.|
|THEY FOUND IT.|

Even better was Angourie Rice's phenomenal performance as Rose. Much like Rose did to James in the movie, Angourie managed to tug at our heartstrings throughout this one. She's honestly one of the better child actors to come along in some time, and if she wants it, she has a bright future ahead of her in front of the camera.
Jessica De Gouw and Sarah Snook were solid in their roles as well, even if they were smaller ones.
|DAMMIT GIRL, STOP MAKING US FEEL THINGS!|
|OH, YOU'LL KNOW.|
If you really want to have yourself a fun Double Feature, watch this one back-to-back with Maggie; just make sure you have some Kleenex handy. And maybe some whiskey.
