A meditation on death about two young brothers dealing with the sudden death of a friend and all the other losses around them.

Carbone has a voice, an eye, and one would guess had a boyhood in a mild wild like the one the brothers eddy through. The elegant, of-course-that's-the-world cinematography is by Nick Bentgen.

An evocative rumination on adolescence... honest, impressionistic portrayal of youthful summertime memories

[Features an] outsider perspective, authentic locations, unforced naturalism, and fresh, improvisatory work by first-time actors.

Daniel Patrick Carbone puts in so much of his resource into the texture and background of his setting that he neglects the plot.

There's a startling stillness about the film, especially the opening scenes, that becomes a character in itself and helps to avoid softness.

All in all, Smiling Faces is a strongly promising first effort, introducing a talented filmmaker who's still in the process of finding his own voice.

Traces of classic coming-of-age dramas such as Stand by Me and River's Edge are evoked in this lyrical and low-key reflection on sudden mortality and childhood's end.

It's possible for a movie to confirm the innate filmmaking gifts of its helmer while still not quite succeeding as a standalone film. Such is the case with this artful yet frustrating coming-of-age drama, which values tone over incident.

Quickly and assuredly, writer-director Carbone puts us in the mood of these languorous summer days.

Highlighting the inexplicable beauty in nature while presenting his young characters with ravaging existentialism makes for an alluring, tense, beautiful experience

This lyrical drama announces the arrival of a talented young director with a keen grasp of youth; a man who presents a truthful vision of how death impacts soon-to-be men differently depending on their ages.

It's not just these children's smiling faces that are hidden here - it's everything that might make you want to search out the meaning behind them.

"Hide Your Smiling Faces" conveys life as the boys experience it: a pungent mixture of boredom, curiosity, fear and mischievousness, along with an anxious sense of being trapped.

While there's little dialogue and no music, the naturalist filmmaking is anything but boring. The tension lends weight to the everyday business of being a young person with time on your hands.

[It] focuses on unspoken adolescent feelings instead of familiar puerile events, with clichés held at arm's length. Unfortunately, Hide Your Smiling Faces is so slow it could use a few action sequences to speed things up.

The many silences in "Hide Your Smiling Faces" don't speak quite loudly enough, and the film ultimately gets bogged down by its own ponderousness.
