Ratings & Reviews

  • Based on the picture book co-authored by Power of Now superstar Eckhart Tolle, Milton’s Secret carries a powerful and important message, but the film feels ham-fisted, clichéd and overearnest at times, especially for adult viewers. show more

  • Sutherland brings some believable warmth to a film whose spiritual "aha" moments are generally packaged too tidily to hit home. show more

  • Movies like this grate largely because of their test tube “solutions” to real world problems as old as the species. show more
