Young Actors Shine In The Heartbreaking Drama 'Mean Dreams'

It features one of Bill Paxton's last roles.

Mean Dreams (PG13) 

Starring Bill Paxton, Sophie Nélisse, Josh Wiggins

Directed by Nathan Morlando

Poetic, if phlegmatic, drama about two teenage lovers (Max’s Josh Wiggins and The Book Thief’s Sophie Nélisse) on the run with drug money, with unsavory characters chasing them.

As the backwoods version of Romeo and Juliet, Wiggins and Nélisse exude sweetness and innocence; their desire to escape to greener pastures is both heartwarming and heartbreaking.

As the girl’s corrupt and abusive cop father whom the kids stole from, the late Bill Paxton cuts a menacing figure. He’s going to be missed. (3 stars)
