About the Movie

Young Joey lives an idyllic life on the coast of Florida with his wealthy, adoptive parents until the day they receive a distressing phone call: Joey’s birth parents want him back. One family is determined to keep the son they love, the other to begin the new life they’ve always dreamed of. Caught between legal and class struggles, both families are forced to make a decision that could change Joey’s life forever.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: For those who like this genre of film, this one executes the formula very well. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Sep 24, 2010

Fresh: An on-the-nose though cathartically emotional melodrama giving Mira Sorvino her most substantial bigscreen role in years and featuring a head-turning performance by Barry Pepper. – Robert Koehler, Variety, Mar 29, 2011

Fresh: Like Dandelion Dust is a well-acted, earnest film about adoptive parents' worst nightmare, dealing sympathetically with all parties in a lose-lose situation. – Michael Ordona, Los Angeles Times, Oct 7, 2010

Rotten: This "family" film fails to deliver much more than good intentions and predictable conflict. – Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel, Mar 29, 2011
