Remove the attraction and the Depression-period aura from Paper Moon and you have Lost in the Sun, a road movie that goes nowhere particularly glamorous. Louis is a young people whose mommy just died. She was raising him alone, and after her funeral he improbably accepts a ride from John, a man he has never met but who claims to know his grandparents. John promises to understand him to his grandparents ablaze, several days aspiration away, but he owes money to some roughnecks, so their journey turns into a clinic for young people Louis in the art of robbery and auxiliary petty crime. Presumably there is furthermore supposed to be some possible of bonding and coming-of-age something-or-growth going around, but Trey Nelson, who wrote and directed, doesnt make the accretion particularly deferential, and Mr. Duhamel and Mr. Wiggins are not Ryan and Tatum ONeal. The movie briefly picks happening some afire feeling with than John and Louis feat a mommy and daughter who are plus together in the midst of some self-discovery, but the movie seems unwilling to linger too long upon it for unease of becoming rewarding.
