2 of 4

“..this is a love story as old as, well, "Love Story," the gushy novel-turned-blockbuster from 1970..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
2.5 of 5

“..there's a pleasing straightforwardness to The Fault In Our Stars..”
by Jake Wilson [Sydney Morning Herald]
“..the script makes an excellent fit for Woodley, ...two similarly smart, self-aware films..”

4 of 5

“..the film has enough charm and humor to keep it appealing..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]
“..soulfully acted, especially by a never-better Shailene Woodley, and several degrees smarter than most films aimed at teenagers..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]
3 of 4

“..it's a good, smart, careful movie, anchored by a lovely performance by Shailene Woodley, but it doesn't quite take you where the book does..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]
“..it never gets cloying, which is a testimony to the grounding influence of Woodley. Against all odds, it even manages to end on an upbeat note..”
by Diane Garrett [The Wrap]

LATEST REVIEWS

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

MR. TURNER :

“..an ecstatically beautiful and exquisitely detailed portrait of the artist as a cantankerous middle-aged man..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

ANNIE :

“..more of a facelift than an update, the pic dusts off some old songs, adds a few desultory stabs at new ones, and stuffs the frame with shiny upscale gadgets that scream "modern"..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE SANTA CON :

“..this movie was mostly about crime and lies and betrayal and sticking your nose into other people's business..”
by Jill O'Rourke [Crushable]

THE CHRISTMAS PARADE :

“..the movie takes the standard "girl has wrong boy, girl gets right boy" story and simply fills in the blanks..”
by Tom Conroy [Media Life Magazine]

NICK OFFERMAN: AMERICAN HAM :

“..a solid comedy special--with stylish prerecorded title sequences for each new Tip--but it lacks some of the inventiveness or surprise..”
by Kyle Burton [indieWIRE]

AFTER THE FALL :

“.."After the Fall" belongs to a type of movie that is too lazy to connect the dots and fill in the blanks between its supposedly teachable moments..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]

THE COLOR OF TIME :

“..for all the experimentalism of its conception, falls some way short here, and ends up an irreproachably tasteful, easily digestible but an unsurprising, undemanding watch..”
by Jessica Kiang [The Playlist]
