From an orphanage in India, to a single-parent household in inner-city Melbourne, to bathing with elephants in Thailand, I AM ELEVEN explores the lives and thoughts of children from 15 countries.

Critic Reviews for I Am Eleven

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (4)

Regardless of background, sophistication or home country, the kids all share a lovely sense of open-heartedness. They all talk about being part of a collective, and see the human race as a large extended family.

Washington Post
Top Critic

What emerges is a group of kids who are generally content but must confront the often confusing time between childhood and adolescence.

San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

An enjoyable mishmash of young voices and faces poised between childhood and teenagerdom.

Christian Science Monitor
Top Critic

A smart, enjoyable portrait.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

The project could easily have seemed like a smarmy Nickelodeon special or some variant of "Kids Say the Darndest Things," but Ms. Bailey's willingness to let the children talk and to let the viewer impose broader meaning elevates it.

New York Times
Top Critic

The feature-length film ultimately becomes repetitive, with the lack of contextual information about the subjects' lives rendering the proceedings shallow.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

Charming, thought-provoking global docu about childhood.

Full Review… | September 15, 2014
Common Sense Media

The film is pleasant enough as a facile anthropological exercise, though it reveals little insight.

Full Review… | September 13, 2014
Movie Mezzanine

Pearls of wisdom from the mouths of babes uttered with such heartfelt conviction that you want to believe them, even when you're a little skeptical.

Full Review… | September 11, 2014
Baret News

An entertaining and appealing documentary about the hopes, dreams, and fears of eleven year olds around the world.

Full Review… | September 11, 2014
Spirituality and Practice

...'Eleven' is not novel; Bailey's work is simply and certainly the energetic, optimistic film she set out to make.

Full Review… | September 11, 2014
Film Journal International

Pretty and ambitious, but scattered and inconsequential.

Full Review… | September 8, 2014
McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Racism, poverty, bullying, and traditional culture rear their ugly heads in some of the lives, but its important to note that Bailey's mission statement seems to be, most of all, to highlight the positive.

Onya Magazine

I Am Eleven is part "Kids Say the Darndest Things," part sociology lesson and all smiles.

Cleveland Plain Dealer

Bailey has created something on par with the Up series.

Cinema Autopsy

More than a dozen 11 year olds make up the cast of this simple and sincere doco put together by young Melbourne journalist Genevieve Bailey during a world trip

Urban Cinefile

Beautifully made, insightful, unusual documentary about growing up...the constant snap shots of contrast keep the heart of this celebratory film beating.
