    ‘The School for Good and Evil’ Review: How Did Paul Feig’s YA Adaptation Fare?

    Published on

    The movie features an ensemble cast including Kerry Washington and Charlize Theron

    Soman Chainani’s young adult novel, The School for Good and Evil had been in development hell for a long time and is finally out. The Netflix adaptation is now out, and has been directed by Paul Feig, who, let’s say, does not have experience in the fantasy genre. Let’s move on with the review.

    The School for Good and Evil Story

    We open to a very artificial-looking world, and see twin brothers Rafal and Rhian (Kit Young), who create the school to maintain a balance between good and evil. The school, of course, came to be known as The School for Good and Evil. However, peace wasn’t permanent, since Rafal suddenly says he prefers chaos. His brother warns him that conjuring blood magic will be his end.

    Years pass and Sophie (Sophia Anne Caruso), a teen orphan, is shown in the sleepy town of Gavaldon. Her late mother says she is fated to change the world. Across from her lives Agatha (Sofia Wylie), a daughter of a failed witch. Despite being Yin and Yang, the two are best friends. They find out about the school and the adventures they have.

    How did it go?

    To put it bluntly, The School for Good and Evil was a disaster. The story takes place in an exciting world, with equally exciting characters, but Feig has failed to capture it. The movie feels like a knockoff of the Harry Potter series and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. There are too many plots happening at the same time, an over-the-top background score, and very little at stake.

    The performances and musical scores don’t really help either, as the only thing that can be admired are the costumes.

    The School for Good and Evil is currently streaming on Netflix.
