THE FREE WORLD REVIEWED
“The Free World” worked better for me when it was called “The Drop”. “The Drop” worked better for me when it was “Animal Rescue”. Naturally, the film is derivative. If you’re going to enjoy the film, it will be due to Boyd Holbrook and Elisabeth Moss’s stunning performances. Octavia Spencer gets the thankless job of supporting third party. When Spencer disappears and the film becomes a bizarre road trip, it goes from derivative to off-the-rails. If you want a strong indie film to pass a cold winter afternoon, this one is for you.
