The Housde With a Clock in its Walls
Big names (and personalities) Jack Black and Cate Blanchett guide budding child star Owen Vaccaro as Lewis in the main role. Lewis's parents are killed in a tragic accident and he goes to live with his Uncle Jonathon (Black) in a spooky haunted house. As the plot progresses, Lewis discovers a world of magic and mysterious creatures, with a clock in the walls counting down to doomsday. The boy uncovers his own magical powers just in time as trouble is brewing.
Owen Vaccaro is a breath of fresh air in the role. While the plot is a little predictable, we all found lots to like and engaged with the 3 main characters. Sunny Suljic as class bully Tarby is also a highlight.
I took Miss 10 and Mr 15 who enjoyed the show and found it very entertaining.
