Movie Reviews

  • with a clear goal in sight, the movie suddenly takes on an engrossing urgency
    3 of 5 by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York ]
  • these kids can be logical and ever so ruseful, as witness the brothers' success in organizing a journey to the bullet-train convergence spot
    by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal ]
  • there is a lot of hope in the air in "I Wish," but the film never feels sappy
    3.5 of 5 by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • the tension between the seriousness of his problem and the naivete with which he approaches it is a source of much drama in the film, but it's also part of why I Wish doesn't reach the heights it's capable of
    2.5 of 4 by Michael Nordine [Slant Magazine ]
  • the message is un-American, too-that it's wiser to make peace with the world into which you've been thrust than spend your time wishing for a better one
    by David Edelstein [New York Magazine ]
  • the filmmaker lets scenes unfold at an unhurried clip, giving full breath to his stars' staggeringly mature performances
    3 of 4 by Robert Levin [amNewYork ]
  • the film invites us into the world of a child in more ways than one, though
    by Chris Benderev [NPR ]
  • tends toward the vaporous and not just because of its volcano; but whenever its children are on screen, lighted up with joy or dimmed by hard adult truths, the film burns bright
    3 of 5 by Manohla Dargis [New York Times ]
  • on that knife edge of yearning and longing is this whole film balanced
    by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com ]
  • it's an exuberant yet tender journey, never descending into saccharine cuteness or manufactured melodrama
    3.5 of 5 by Kathleen Murphy [MSN Movies ]
  • it feels loose, but has a structure that reveals itself after the fact
    by Alison Willmore [Village Voice ]
  • deceptively modest and utterly lovely
    5 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
