Lay off His Ears
In his Feb. 12 review of the television drama “Not of This World,” Chris Willman not only took the movie to task but he singled out 10-year-old Luke Edwards and insulted his ears.
I can understand Willman not liking the movie and I can appreciate his vitriol directed at the makers of a film he so despises, but I cannot fathom his insensitivity toward a child actor’s feelings, someone who dreams of acting and could harm no one. Even if Luke’s performance was abominable (which it was not), it cannot justify this sort of personal attack.
It does a disservice to the Los Angeles Times to insult Luke so painfully and publicly. I believe an apology is in order.
