Just finished watching “The New Mutants” with Kayla Morgan. Overall, the movie was better than I expected, but as my daughter put it “nothing seemed to really happen.” Perhaps it is strongest as a character study. It felt kind of like the Bottle Show episode of a really expensive TV series. It’s still worth checking out (especially for free at the library).
I think it was on Josh’s radar for a little bit as a movie he might have wanted to see. It was out in the theaters early on during COVID-19. I’m not sure if he would have liked it or not. Kayla seemed to get into the movie, despite its flaws. I’m glad she was able to watch it with me, because it would have felt wrong to see this particular one alone.
