[Movie Review] Little Boxes (2016) #KataKinema
When an interracial couple, Gina (Melanie Lynskey) and Mack (Nelsan Ellis), move cross-country
from New York City to a small Washington suburb with their son, Clark (Armani Jackson), they are unprepared for the cultural shift and lifestyle changes that they encounter.
This one has a quite good premise and issues that were shown in this film are relatable with the real
daily life, especially on how it depicts a ‘white’ neighborhood acts around a biracial family. But I think “Little Boxes” suffers from the script that’s going a bit messy toward the end and anti-climatic, even
though the main problem dynamic is actually progressing. The tone, the camera works, and the
musics are good, well-suited with the movie’s theme.
The chemistry between the casts are also not compelling enough to make me enjoy this movie as a
whole (and the acts sometimes feel too forced), but this one kid -- Oona Laurence -- did a brilliant
job portraying a wrongly-raised kid who has some premature ‘sexualized’ fantasies. After all, this is a
good film to watch while relaxing at your bed.
3 out of 5
