A blast from the past!
Who has never felt the deep desire to fix today’s problems yesterday; to go back in time and erase critical mistakes. The film explores this question more in-depth than Back to the Future did. 11.22.63 is easily one of the best time travelling stories ever adapted to screen. It’s a mini-series, so it requires involvement, but every second is worth it. You should jump in head first!
11.22.63 is a science-fiction story and a supernatural drama. It contains horrific scenes, but in the midst of it evolves a touching love story. This is also one of Stephen King’s most political tale, and one of his most mature work despite the colorful premise. In this mini-series, a time traveler; James Franco’s character, attempts to prevent John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963.
This feature is dialogue-oriented. Though not everyone is a big star, all actors are highly competent. Those who are reluctant to see James Franco in the protagonist’s shoes will surely reconsider. He is amusing and extremely sympathetic. His character deserves to achieves his goals but fails at every step. You see, the past doesn’t want to be changed. The past is the ultimate villain, in fact…
