Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Pic sidesteps cloying sentimentality and heavy-handedness with the help of a solid cast.
Fresh: Charming, raunchy and improbably uplifting.
Fresh: A generally affecting and occasionally insightful drama about the ways people handle an awareness of mortality.
Fresh: Fitzgibbon's cast is excellent, and the movie's animated interludes liven up what could've been thoroughly pat.
Terrific and moving!
Raw and darkly sweet - spunky coming of age with edge.
this movie is just beautiful. the creative use of animation really adds to the beauty. love it <3
a must see...funny, sad and edgy!!!
Great film. A difficult topic handled well and surprisingly uplifting... loved the integration of animation! ...check it out, you wont regret it! It's an emotional roller coaster that makes you laugh and cry and definitely want more! Also nice to see Andy Serkis (alias Gollum) perform without a motion capturing suit. He does a great job and so does the rest of the cast!
