In the currently released film, "Captain Fantastick" an adolescent female gives a 15 second appraisal of "Lo...a", a lovely take on the novel and HH. On the one hand her emotional responses to the lover/on the other the reality of a monster. It serves as well as an unrecognized comment on her father, the central character of the film, and perhaps the film-maker's intention to induce a similar ambivalence in the viewer.
