The 9th Life of Louis Drax Trailer Review

Ooh now this looks like it could be an interesting film, based on the best selling novel of the same name by Liz Jensen the storyline takes place after a tragic incident on Louis Drax’s 9th birthday….sounds like a cool mystery will unfold.

What I liked:

  • The cast looks fantastic. Jamie Dornan is so much more than his role as Christian Gray, and anyone who has watched BBC’s The Fall will know what I am taking about. Aaron Paul is just awesome and Sarah Gadon has done some great work too (A Dangerous Method).
  • There was just the right balance of exposition and confusion to pique my interest. There clearly is something about going into peoples minds? Right?
  • Ambiguous and flawed characters. The Dad or the Mum possibly tried to kill their son? The Doctor sleeps with the Mum! Who are these people?!
  • Stunning Visuals. I am such a sucker for gorgeous cinematography (everyone knows that) and Louis Drax looks to fulfil my need for beautiful visuals.
  • What is that Monster! The reveal behind this subconscious monster could be really interesting.

What I Didn’t like:

  • That blink and you miss it shot of the mother approaching her startled looking son. If she did push him off the edge then this is a really annoying spoiler of epic proportions!!!

So The 9th Life of Louis Drax is coming to cinemas on 2nd September so count me in. Also a question to all the book readers out there is the novel worth a read?
