[Seymour's] story demands a larger meaning, a sense of the poetic, than mere heart-tugging can provide, but Rosenfeld cannot provide it.
| Original Score: 2/5
A hard, vibrant surface can't quite cover the mossy, skimpy center of this story.
One of those films that feel drunk on their own virtue.
| Original Score: 2/4
[Rosenfeld] finds a way to convey messiness that gives King an honest and particular heartbeat.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Old-fashioned in good ways and bad.
