Tom Holland’s quest for proof that he’s not just a superhero film actor continues. Much like Robert Pattinson reinventing himself after Twilight films, Holland has recently selected many films that must be far more emotional than he was as Peter Parker.
His latest is Cherry, directed by Avengers: Endgame director duo, the Russo Brothers. Angela Russo-Otstot and Jessica Goldberg wrote the script.
In the film, which is based on the novel by Nico Walker, Holland plays the role of an Iraq war veteran who comes home with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and starts robbing banks.
Before going to war, he married his girlfriend, but now he’s come back a changed man. Will he be able to continue his relationship or is it over for good? And if all of that wasn’t bleak enough, he’s also addicted to opioids.
The film deals with somber subjects but also seems to use humor to balance the tone. The story looks like a complex character study of a young man, and Holland, at least in the trailer, does a blast in the role.
However, his always boyish face spoils the effect of a stony veteran that he clearly wants to convey.
The film’s official logline reads: “In an epic odyssey of romance, war, drug addiction and crime, a young man (Tom Holland) fights to find his place in the world.”
Cherry will be in US theaters on February 26th and will premiere on Apple TV Plus on March 12th.
