Sh*tty book, Sh*tty film.
We read, “The Westing Game” in my English class and I think that almost everybody hated it.
Plot: A group of one-note characters get together to try and win the prize of a game created by a dead man.
I think that this film fails the most when trying to progress the plot and develop characters. For example, Theo in the book is trying to earn his fathers respect and try to have a successful career, but due to his fathers jealously, Try’s to not let his son surpass him through life. In the film it’s just explained through one poorly acted line.
The same goes for Angela not being in love with the man she’s…
