My Best Worst Adventure: Review

My Best Worst Adventure

Jenny (Lily Patra) is a typical thirteen-year-old girl that’s holding in a lot of contempt and doubt about the world. She hardly communicates with anyone, preferring to write down her feelings and post them on social media where she talks about being an alien and feeling out of place.

She’s also dealing with the loss of her mother and her father has also shipped her off to rural Thailand so that he doesn’t have to deal with her and she’s feeling lost and alone. Then one day Jenny sees Boonrod (Pan Rugtawatr) and she saves him from getting beaten up by one of the most popular boys in school.

Boonrod also has trouble speaking and prefers to stay mute and has family troubles of his own because his family are poor and his father in debt to local criminals. It’s unfortunate for Jenny and Boonrod then that Jenny saved Boonrod from being beaten up by the son of the leader of the criminal gang. So, not realising what would happen, Jenny and Boonrod soon find themselves in serious trouble.

My Best Worst Adventure is a charming and emotional coming of age drama. Set in Thailand, director Joel Soisson makes it feel like a world apart from what Jenny knows. However, it also strangely familiar and so although most audiences may have not encountered that environment before, the issues that Jenny and Boonrod face are strikingly familiar.

Remaining silent throughout the film, Patra and Rugtawatr are left with only body language and expressions in order to communicate with each other and Soisson manages to craft a beautiful friendship between the children which is bound to warm hearts.

There’s something rather formulaic about theses kinds of coming-of-age dramas though and for those who have seen films such as The Karate Kid and My Girl then they may know what to expect.

Although with such a wonderful pair of child actors and the score so wonderfully suiting the mood, the audience will certainly not mind. My Best Worst Adventure is something the whole family can enjoy and will leave them with a smile.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
