Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: With its exhilarating World War II narrative and performances that touch notes intimate and grand, "Simon and the Oaks" has an exquisite, and epic, ache.
Rotten: Though it retains the narrative complexity of the Swedish bestseller on which it's based, WWII saga Simon and the Oaks never creates an emotional or intellectual throughline of its own.
Fresh: It's a warmly done family and personal drama that seems to cover familiar territory, but only up to a point and very much in its own way.
Rotten: Simon and the Oaks has all the superficial elements of compelling drama but none of the interiority; it looks like a good movie without ever actually feeling like one.
