San Francisco Chronicle
Has that Dickensian spirit wherein simple acts of kindness can bring an audience close to tears. Full Review
David Rooney
A touching, old-fashioned charmer that ultimately satisfies. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
It's filled with vivid characters and action. Beneath its modesty of gesture, it's one of the year's richest, most humane films. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
That Irving adapted his novel to the screen himself and, even more, that Hallström directed it, makes Cider House a far better film than other film adaptations of Irving's work. Full Review
Lisa Schwarzbaum
Entertainment Weekly
Lasse Hallström calms Irving's typically busy 1985 best-seller with a balm of the Swedish director's typically soothing lyricism. Full Review
