“All contemporary American literature derives from a novel called Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain,” said Ernest Hemingway. This novel continues extremely contemporary and poignantly meaningful one hundred years after the suicide of its author. Elijah Wood says Huck in a youthful tone in this brand new version, which may be the nearest translation to the original intent of Twain. His achievement reflects adolescence and adventure’s thrill and embarrassment. Best of all, Wood’s vigorous reading’s immediacy picks viewers up and lets them feel like they’re on the journey as Huck and Jim carry their raft to liberty.
