  • Not every book should be made into a film and, as appears to be the case with Winter’s Tale, not every book can be (especially this one). show more

  • Aspiring transcendent love stories don't come much more claptrappy and unconvincing than Winter's Tale. show more

  • Mr. Goldsman, a first-time director though a veteran screenwriter, has been done in by the source material. Either he climbed aboard a horse that was too much for him, or the universe gave him a bum steer. show more
