This adaptation of a story by Nobel Prize-winning author Alice Munro, in which two teenage girls play an epistolary prank on a young spinster, is a noble effort. The acting is uniformly good, with a standout performance by Guy Pearce. The film has an appealingly timeless visual style and doesn’t hit every expected emotional mark or tie up too many loose ends. Rated R. 104 minutes. The Screen, Santa Fe. See review.
