Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Unabashedly sentimental, it's meant to touch our hearts in profound and important ways, but misses the mark by drawing too deeply from a pool of schmaltz. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
A powerful and surehandedly crafted depth charge of a movie. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
The movie is pleasant enough, in its studied way, and Mr. Hopkins does as well as anyone could in the role of a wise man with vaguely supernatural powers. Still, it's awfully amorphous and pokey. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Assisted by a well-crafted script by the veteran William Goldman and a masterful performance by Anthony Hopkins, Hicks has turned two King short stories into a somber meditation on the dreams and frustrations of childhood and the ways the adult world makes its darker qualities known. Full Review
Mike Clark
USA Today
Don't underestimate the appeal of a heart-tugger that's this well mounted. Full Review
