‘The Darkest Minds’: Amandla Stenberg stars in Jennifer Yuh Nelson’s tepid adapation of the young-adult novel

Adapted from Alexandra Bracken’s book, the movie begins with a flurry of dystopia, as a pandemic kills a major percentage of the U.S.’s children, leaving those that survive with strange abilities.

The more time we spend with a presenter, the more we feel we know them. When a new host takes over, it can be jarring. This is not an argument against change.
