Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There's plenty of intrigue on the New Mexico ranch our heroine is shunted off to in "Kepler's Dream," but little suspense is wrung from it in this tepid family drama adapted from a well-reviewed YA novel by Juliet Bell.
Rotten: This family-friendly drama may be inspired by a 17th-century book of the same name by the visionary astronomer, but the movie "Kepler's Dream" lacks imagination.
Fresh: Thankfully devoid of the fantasy elements endemic to so many cinematic versions of YA novels, Kepler's Dream proves a modest but diverting family film charmer.
Fresh: Kepler's Dream is a study in family dynamics that's sweet without being too saccharine.
