2 of 5

“..we're left with another coming-of-age tale of getting to the emotional maturity while not letting go of the quirk..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..the film - through the languor of its scenes, the soft-spoken sentimentality of its dialogue - is a passive-aggressive exercise in emotional coercion..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
2.5 of 4

“..the faces of youth with a poet's eye for beauty and pain..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
Review rate : C

“..naturally the crazy, pretty, doomed kids fall in love in Restless - this wearying, cottony drama..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
2.5 of 4

“..instead of exploring sorrow, loss and dying in a thoughtful fashion, this has a Lifetime Channel vibe, with a morose bent and artfully framed shots..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..goopy doomed teen romance looks to appeal mostly to impressionable adolescent girls..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

“..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]
