My Best Worst Adventure - A Movie Review


From Joel Soisson, producer of “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure”, comes the family adventure of the fall, MY BEST WORST ADVENTURE. 

There are worse things than death. Especially for a testy American teen sent to stay with her eccentric Thai grandmother.
Written and directed by Joel Soisson (“The Prophecy”, “A Nightmare on Elm Street II : Freddy’s Revnge”, “Pulse”), and starring Lily Patra, Pan Rugtawatr and Eoin O'Brien, MY BEST WORST ADVENTURE will be available on digital platforms (Amazon, Comvast, FandangoNow, Vudu, Verizon Cable, Overdrive, Vimeo & more) beginning September 1 from Kaczmarek Digital Media Group.

The 411:

This was an interesting coming of age story about a girl whose step father sends her to Thailand after her mother passes away to spend some time with her grandma.

Thailand is a far cry from her wealthy upbringing but since her mother’s death Jenny is mute (this was me after my mom died and I totally get it) preferring to talk through writing. 

At school she meets another mute, a boy who is bullied. Together they find their voice and the respect of others.

I enjoyed this movie and found it very sweet. With very little dialogue it is easy to follow along, and young people will easily be able to figure out who the protagonist and antagonists are. 

Lily Petra makes an stunning movie debut playing the vulnerability and strong girl at the same time. She is wonderful.

Great family movie to discuss cultural differences. There are moments of violence. An alcoholic father hits a boy, bullying, a fight, and an animal gets injured, all of which can be warned and discussed with your child. I thoroughly enjoyed this quiet movie.
