I appreciate how close they kept to the play, but that effort was wasted in actors who couldn't seem to embrace their characters. It's really sad hearing such timeless lines said so robotically. In some instances, it even felt like the actor didn't understand the meaning of the words.

But while some failed, others did surprisingly well. It was interesting to see young people such as Hailee Steinfield and Kodi Smit-McPhee excelling at their roles. The lines came so naturally out of their mouths it felt like they've been talking like that for all their lives!
