On the one hand, this has a somewhat rote Creepy _____ Wants to Befriend [Read: Kidnap/Destroy/Absorb] Child story, even with the This Time It's Through Screens! wrinkle.

On the other, the director is a way better than average Spielberg acolyte who treats the autistic kid's viewpoint with interest and respect and has real flair. And the cast is excellent.

It's not earth-shattering (again because of the been there seen that aspects of the screenplay), but I enjoyed it.
