Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: At its best, the movie has a supernal glow that you can practically warm your hands by.
Fresh: The result is a blend of kitchen-sink and magical realism: sentimental, but well acted and freshly observed.
Fresh: Deeply moving and funny.
Fresh: A wondrously emotional film, one that sneakily dismantles your defenses and purges grief you didn't realize you had.
this is an amazing movie!!!!!!
Dont judge this movie by anything you've heard, this is a great movie for anyone. It actually make you think and feel, rather than all the stupid movies that are being made that make you dumb.
A beautiful, brilliant movie about loss, hardship and the ability to overcome them. A true winner from Sheridan. Great direction and fantastic performances from Samantha Morton, Djimon Hounsou, Sarah & Emma Bolger and Paddy Considine make this film worth seeing. Highly Recommended!
One of the better ones!
Really a beautiful movie about life - maybe seen through innocent eyes, (and naïve), but very true to what the experience of suffering and hardship and friendship really mean. Definitely worth iPoD viewing - if you appreciate good film
