Important lesson from The Kid Detective: the world needs more Adam Brody.
This one took me by surprise. Evan Morgan's The Kid Detective is a low-key, funny and an effective spin on a classic detective noir tale. Far more layered & dark than I was expecting. The movie handles tonal shift from light to dark really well. Adam Brody is just effortlessly good in this and his performance successfully turns a simple detective story into a sad and absorbing character study.
