The Interestings (Amazon)

TheInterestings

The Interestings (Amazon) – Starts 17th June

An adaptation of the novel by Meg Wolitzer, where a group of teenagers meet at an artistic summer camp and remain friends into adulthood.

In it the main character ends up not achieving what the young idealist version of herself set out to get, and is in a marriage with a fella that she doesn’t think is ambitious enough. All the while her friends have all carved out successful careers. Bar the lad she fancied at camp who is in hiding for murder.

The main character is genuinely unlikable and the rest of the characters aren’t much better. It’s a slog to get through.

3.3/10
