A one-time watch!
50%Overall Score

Starring Justine Timberlake, Palmer is a film about an ex-con Eddie Palmer (Timberlake) who has served his time and moves back in with his grandmother. Given the fact that he is an ex-convict, he finds it hard to get a job. Palmer soon forms an unlikely bond with Sam (Ryder Allen), a school-going kid whose mother is a drug addict. Sam is also constantly mocked and ridiculed for his feminine identity. He loves watching princess shows on TV and plays with Barbie dolls. The two outcasts of society begin to bond and Palmer soon realizes that Sam is the best thing that ever happened to him.

Nothing new!

There’s nothing revolutionary about the plot of this film. We’ve seen it done in several other films before and thus it makes this movie extremely predictable. The only twist to the story about an emotionally distant man who finds purpose in life because of a child is that Sam is non-binary. Palmer undergoes a deep transformation through the course of the film that drives him to be a good role model and father-figure to Sam who has to deal with bullies of all kinds.

The child becomes the master!

Justine Timberlake does a great job in this film as far as his acting goes. He plays the emotionally distant screw up pretty well. However, the person that takes the cake is Ryder Allen. His adorable face and brilliant acting made this film worth watching.


WATCH OR NOT:

Streaming on Apple TV, Palmer is a one-time watch over the weekend if you’re bored and don’t have much else to do.
