Audience Reviews for Adventures of Sebastian Cole

Awesommme movie...Definitely one of my favs, untraditional and moving! I didn't even know about this movie, until I saw a trailer on a movie I was watching like 5 yrs ago, and I rented it at blockbuster..and I've loved it ever since...


it had such an amazing potential and fell flat on its face. i felt like i had wasted time in watching this all the way through.

Probably one of the most underrated movies ever. I love it more wth each viewing. Adrian Grenier and Gabriel Macht are awesome in this.
