Jamie Bell (who I'll always associate with Billy Elliott) was phenomenal as Hallam Foe, a seventeen year old voyeur, whose mother had recently committed suicide. Unable to cope, Hallam leaves for the big city, where he finds a woman who looks eerily similar to his mother and Hallam starts spying on her. I get that this film was supposed to be coming of age, sophisticated, and meaningful, but honestly, I just found it creepy. The film was choppy, extremely slow, and just when you thought something was going to happen, it doesn't. In Mister Foe, Jamie Bell really does show just how good an actor he has become. Aside from that, this movie is just weird. Expand

This was a pleasant surprise. Sure there are maybe a few holes in the story but it has many clever inventions (the treehouse, hallam's skill at climbing buildings and picking locks) and the actors keep us emotionally connected. Probably This was a pleasant surprise. Sure there are maybe a few holes in the story but it has many clever inventions (the treehouse, hallam's skill at climbing buildings and picking locks) and the actors keep us emotionally connected. Probably my favorite thing is the evocation of the gloomy, gritty glamor of Scotland, which I wish were in more films! Collapse

The most loving story about the most stranger character of the 21'th Century's movies.

I tried watching this movie on three occasions, and could not get into it at all. I found it painfully slow moving. I did finish it but was not impressed. Very well acted though.
