Adolescence is not endlessly fascinating.

The young cast give it a good crack but cannot overpower the weight of contrivance.

October 19, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Feels forced nearly every step of the way, always spelling out literally what it yearns to express symbolically.

August 3, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

A whimsical coming-of-age tale, mixed with a bit of the macabre, Boys in the Trees is a cautionary tale of adolescence masked by ghost stories.
