Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: For those who like this genre of film, this one executes the formula very well.
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.
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.
Rotten: This "family" film fails to deliver much more than good intentions and predictable conflict.
I read this book when I was 12 and I cried almost throughout all of it. Karen kingsbury is an artist. A must see for drama fans.
Fresh and enjoyable, a nice departure from the stamp mill of Hollywood. Great script, acting and photography. Entertaining, suspenseful, and emotional - and that's from a guy.
Really a phenomenal movie! I have never written a review on a movie before but this was worth commenting about. Wonderful acting and a moving story!
