Fierce People (2007)

2 Stars (out of 4)

From Bad to 'Fierce'

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Fifteen year-old Finn (Anton Yelchin) spends the summer with his newly sober mom (Diane Lane), a masseuse, on the estate of a wealthy crackpot (Donald Sutherland). Adapted from Dirk Wittenborn's book, Griffin Dunne's movie starts as a perfectly acceptable black comedy. The laughs suddenly cease after a brutal rape sequence, and Dunne desperately and vainly tries to re-work the remainder of the movie as a metaphysical coming-of-age story, with comparisons to tribal customs, as well as a misguided, paper-thin whodunit. Accompanied by a sober piano-and-violin score, Dunne's touch is far too timid to do the material any real justice, and the result is a terrible betrayal. No wonder this spent two years on the shelf. Chris Evans and Kristen Stewart co-star.
