The vanishing of sidney hall

Postby Kajijora В» 17.04.2020

.

The latest effort in the literary mystery genre. Since its debut in , J. The book, as well as its protagonist Holden Caulfield, has achieved a level of fame no one could have predicted. Winona Ryder supposedly owns a copy of every edition and language in which it was published, and Mark David Chapman notoriously had a copy with him when the shot John Lennon. For years, Salinger refused to let any film adaptations of his most famous work be made, resulting in a number of reworked versions of the novel being filmed.

The latest of these, The Vanishing of Sidney Hall , may be the most telling as it manages to capture the spirit of Holden, the social consequences of the novel and the effect of both elements on its elusive author.

Jumping back and forth between eras, The Vanishing of Sidney Hall traces the journey of its title character Logan Lerman , from his awkward teen years to success as an influential bestselling author as seen through his interactions with the girl next door Elle Fanning , his complicated mom Michelle Monaghan , his literary agent Nathan Lane and an admiring fan Margaret Qualley.

We see high school Sidney as slightly sarcastic, fearless and curious about the world beyond his suburban confines. The wonderful coming-of-age moments juxtaposed with instances which show him to be wise beyond his years make Sindey feel real and fleshed out. When the audience meets adult Sidney he succumbs to feelings of cynicism and disillusionment after failing to accept of understand with the event of the past which led him there.

It is that power which he cannot control and as a result, retreats away from the world after he recognizes the power behind what he has written. The Vanishing of Sidney Hall can very well be classified as a literary mystery; by far one of the toughest genres to capture on the screen.

The film offers up an honest and involving portrait of the tortured literary soul. Sidney is never once glamorized or pitied, but rather explored as he tries in vain to maintain something of a stable hold on the shaky reality he finds himself in.

When Sidney realizses he is ultimately unable to do this, he leaves. Always one of the most stirring of young actors, Lerman turns in his finest performance to date.

For all its attributes and good intentions, a few aspects of The Vanishing of Sidney Hall keep it from reaching perfection. For one, the script tends to favor the abstract for too large a portion of its run time in an effort to keep its secrets closely held. At points overscored and with a few too many climactic montages throughout, the movie greatly runs the risk of being labeled empty and pretentious were it not for its offbeat angles and shots as well as the theme which comprises its core.

Literary sensation or restless teen, The Vanishing of Sidney Hall ultimately is a film about the dark, dangerous secrets we carry and their powerful grip on the human soul. Sign in. Frank Calvillo Follow. Cinapse Follow.
