Tragically, the film’s dramatization is enfeebled by unending voiceover, foundation radio, newsreels, so everyone can hear letter readings and other clamor. While it reunites Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, which may demonstrate appealing in advertisements, Hanks seems just in a small book-end part.
The motion picture is further stifled by various internal monologs as wet-behind-the-ears Homer (Alex Neustaedter) rides his bicycle and considers genuine matters. Homer’s thoughts are not the typical, youthful kid concerns (sex, school, sports), but instead hypotheses on topic that could block a graduate rationality workshop, or goose an evangelist to a day-long sermon. All the more engagingly, Homer aspires to run the 220 obstacles around the local area record time.
