Overall movie was good but not great. Acting and general premise of the movie was good, but wasn’t clear on the point that Luce was trying to make, if any. Luce has a problem with people having to be all one thing (good or bad); film was kind of ambiguous on Luce’s motives and true psyche. Still worth a view.

The narrative, framed as a psychological mystery, labors under more layers of significance than it can handle without falling into contrivance and argumentation. Still, the dramatic core is strong, an exceptional young man struggling to find, and become, whoever he really is.

Anchored by standout performances by Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer and young Kelvin Harrison Jr., it’s a strong indie film about race, family and trust that should connect with fans of smart, provocative cinema.

Teasing the viewer with ambiguous evidence is one thing, but the film doesn't seem to know what truth is behind the curtain. Luce the man remains unknown, and Luce the movie a missed opportunity.
