a Smith's rating of the film The Moth Diaries

Very poor progression; the writer(s) were clearly at a loss as how to adapt the book, whether due to a lack of skill or time, I don't know. The leading actors are not great, but not bad while the supporting cast is mostly not good. Visually, this is pretty, but unremarkable. Despite the en vogue elements, it has the potential to be better than it is.
