What follows is something like Veronica Mars, only set in snowy D.C. and on heavy sedatives.
Sam Munson s 2010 novel The November Criminals is the kind of book that attracts smart filmmakers and serious actors - that then, all too often, gets diluted into a bland disappointment like November Criminals.
The starry chemistry of leads Ansel Elgort and Chlo? Grace Moretz injects a modicum of energy into the coming-of-age drama, whose elements of romance, crime and smart-kid angst never coalesce.
An ever-uneasy hybrid of teen angst tale and whodunit.
Not that it s awful, exactly. It s a low-budget generic shrug of a movie, one that recycles clich?s both ancient (testy drug dealers) and slightly less ancient (the hero films his life with a camcorder).
