Inspired by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl's book, this movie narrates the story of Ethan (Alden Ehreinreich) who wants to escape Gatlin, the small American town he lives in. Until he meets Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert), old man Ravenswood's (Jeremy Irons) niece. He falls in love with her, but then discovers she comes from a Caster family and will be claimed on her 16th birthday. No one knows if she's going to be claimed by the "Dark Side" and will hurt everyone she loves, so the only way to keep Ethan safe is for her to leave him.
A good movie, between science-fiction & romance, however quite different from the book it's based on - 6/10.
