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

DOPE :

“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

STRANGERLAND :

“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”
by Tim Grierson [Screen Daily]

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]

MORTDECAI :

“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]

THE BOY NEXT DOOR :

“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]

STRANGE MAGIC :

“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

CAKE :

“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
