Details Limited Release: Jan 13, 2012; Length: 90 Minutes; With: Jessica Brown Findlay, Felicity Jones, Sebastian Koch and Julia Ormond

All the requisite quirky shenanigans occur in Albatross, when a troubled teen (Jessica Brown Findlay) starts working at a British seaside inn run by an author (Sebastian Koch), his brittle wife (Julia Ormond), and their bookish daughter (Felicity Jones). Trite lessons are learned. Plotlines play out in familiar arcs. A few blips of sex and drug use aim to make the movie feel more grown-up. Instead, they make it off-limits to the only age group likely to find any charm in its smug Britcom cutesiness. (Available on VOD) C-
