The Book of Henry

A single mother (Naomi Watts) discovers that her overprotective, super-movie-genius 11-year-old son has formulated an impossibly elaborate plan to rescue the girl next door from her abusive father. Rather than talk him out of it, she decides to help him commit murder. Crime writer Gregg Hurwitz (The Kill Clause, Orphan X, Don't Look Back) wrote the screenplay, and Colin Treverow (Safety Not Guaranteed, Jurassic World) directed it; but the ridiculous mechanics and patently unbelievable characters sink this one. 105 minutes PG-13.
