Water Man: Since he wants to make his mother’s best adjustment to a new country town, Gunner and her family – Mary Boones (Rosario Dawson)
And Amos Boone (David Oyelowo), his father wants to avoid making a difference in life for his severely ill mother.
The teen works on his initial graphic novel on a cool theme sensitively and extremely creatively.
Gunner does everything to make his novel as real as possible, from visiting the cemeteries to read mystery novels and passing through books at the local library.
It is also a way to avoid the difficult realities of life for Gunner.
Where his father Amos makes every effort to get to grips with the health of his wife and at the same time deal with a teenage son, the father-son relationship is ultimately stressed.
Amos accidentally powers black ink into the advancing graphic novel of Gunner in the course of events and further strains his relationship.
As he searches for his novel, he meets Jo who speaks of her encounter with The Water Man urban legend.
Once Jim Bussey (Alfred Molina) has been screened to a map of the exact location of the legend, Gunner and Jo will soon begin their journey to find a final elixir.
The book is about The Water Man. The director of the movie, Actor David Oyelowo, did a really good job.
His directorial debut is also smartly combined in the supernatural touch with children’s fantasy drama.
Während the movie deals with grief and the pain of losing somebody, David doesn’t shy away from showing these emotions to the rawest.
In one scene, Gunner advises the doctor about changing the medication for his mother.
Two teens, one in desperation to be able to find a solution, the other run away from her abusive dad, are Jo and Gunner’s chemistry. Unfortunately, Jo’s way of life did not get the attention it deserved.
It is amazing how the dense woods have been shown, the bizarre darkness, the clear water and the luxuriant greenery look good.
Each actor did a lovely job. However, we would certainly like to have seen more of the honest and just Sheriff Goodwin played by Mario Bello.
As a conflicted teenager, Lonnie Chavis has ensured that people are aware of his engaging skills.
The powerful message of the film to find hope in the dark is the right way to reach the audience, especially in the times of tests we collectively face.
