it is sad but touching movie

I loved most parts of the movie, especially how it started and how Mae told her story through narrative. I didn't enjoy the last half hour as much though. The acting was alright and there were some parts that didn't make any sense.

Tras 15 minutos prometedores, pastelazo insufrible. ¡Qué daño ha hecho "Crepúsculo"!

Hideaways -CATCH IT (B)
Hideaways is a sweet little British movie about James Furlong, motherless, discovered an extraordinary gift to an accident causing the death of his father and his grandmother. Shocked by the mysterious power he has discovered, James is isolated in a forest to avoid hurting his family and decides to live there. A few years later, a girl named Mae, took refuge in the same forest because of an incurable disease which would have reached. The two young people meet and fall in love with each other. Their union allows James to discover a force hitherto unsuspected powers. (IMDB)Hideaways is a nice little movie which has good emotional approach to its character. It's a genetic disorder or the family men are jinx no one knows but somehow the story works. The movie is shot in beautiful isolated forest in England. The best part is defiantly the innocence and chemistry of Harry Treadaway and Rachel Hurd-Wood. They both make this movie emotional and beautiful. Even though I wished the ending to be different but that's all right. Still it's a lovely little movie and a good time pass. Watch it!

Depuis qu'elle s'est exilée en Irlande, Agnès Merlet a délaissé le réalisme social pour le conte fantastique post-moderne: "Dorothy Mills" et aujourd'hui, ce "Hideaways", prometteur sur le papier, assez décevant en pratique. Après une introduction empreinte d'un d'humour noir savoureux, "Hideaways" vire sans crier gare vers la romance tristounette entre deux adolescents marqués par la Mort : l'un tue involontairement toute vie à proximité lorsqu'il souffre, l'autre est atteinte d'une maladie incurable. Si cet argument de départ demeure un brin naïf, il parvient pourtant à émouvoir, au moins en surface. Plus d'une fois, l'image du récent "Restless" de Gus Van Sant s'impose à l'esprit quoique dans ce dernier, l'argument fantastique ait été exploité de manière beaucoup plus subtile: dans "Hideaways", l'imagerie symbolique (vie/mort principalement) déployée par Agnès Merlet s'avère, dans le meilleur des cas, "Twilightesque". Enfin, si la mise en place de la rencontre entre ces deux tourtereaux morbides est plutôt réussie, la situation se corse dès qu'il s'agit de les faire progresser et de conclure le récit : Agnès Merlet lance alors sans grande conviction plusieurs pistes, dont aucune ne se montre vraiment satisfaisante. De quoi faire de "Hideaways" une oeuvre qu'on aborde dans un certain enthousiasme mais qu'on quitte désappointé par sa conclusion bâclée.

So its a movie about the Furlongs.
Special powers get passed down from 'father to father, Furlong to Furlong'. Is it a curse or a blessing? Charlie Furlong was temporarily blinded when he thought about sex, his son Philip could turn of electrical equipment when frightened. So when Philips sons James Furlong was born, we see that he has the curse of death. Growing up in Rural Ireland with his father and Grandmaother James starts to experiment on himself to find out his power. His experimenting leads to the death of his father and grandmother and he is then taken to St Judes reformatory, events then lead him to then use his power to kill every one in the reformatory except his friend Liam.

A failed poetic attempt at giving fairytale-like qualities to nothing more than a teen lovelorn tale ending with teen pregnancy.
