Utterly awful! Three quarters of the way through the movie I looked at my friend and asked, "is this a farce?" a la "Best in Show"? But no, 'twas not to be. Please do not waste your time on this cliche of a film. The actors weren't acting, they were caricatures of actors. The script was amateurish. So many other good films out there now...not this one

While I found it mildly interesting, my husband could barely stay awake. If you like old movies, you'll like ********* not a love story its a story of Orson Welles getting a play off the ground and how he used his "genius" to feel free to be shallow and treat people like second class citizens.

McKay, a British stage actor who was doing an off-Broadway production about the movie legend when casting started, and Danes, whose acting always seems so effortlessly good, are the best things about the film. Full Review

McKay's performance is a revelation. He nails Welles' imperiousness, charm and vocal cadences, and even bears a strong resemblance to the iconic actor/director. He is thoroughly convincing as Welles and electrifies the screen when he's on it. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Designed primarily for those who are intrigued by theater, curious about Welles, or some combination of both. Full Review

Mr. McKay is in his mid-30s, and doesn't conceal it, so what's the point? By taking the KIND out of WUNERKIND, the movie also removes the WUNDER. Full Review
