The stuff of time-tested trite melodrama...

There's enough material here for two movies, and frankly, neither sounds like one I'd want to see.

The Kids Are All Right cuts the same corners as this movie, it just uses a better knife.

A film that always chooses optimism and wishful thinking over realism.

What looks on paper like the perfect setup for a farce is actually the makings of a sweet drama.

The anticlimactic child in Patrik, Age 1.5 isn't as nightmarish as Rosemary's Baby or the man-eating wooden branch-sucking-on-a-pacifier in Jan Svankmajer's Little Otik, but it sets off just as much anxiety.

... Patrik, Age 1.5 turns out to be the rare film which actually deserves the label "heartwarming"...

Has a plot that sounds like it could easily be turned into bad comedy or melodrama but a talented, genuine cast keep it real.

This homey construct is warm, exactingly crafted and painted with pop-country tones.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Deftly combining low-key romance and gentle humor, the director, Ella Lemhagen (working from Michael Druker's 2008 play), stares down prejudice with a nudge and a wink rather than a soapbox.

Boston Phoenix

It's so sincerely good-willed, and the performances are low-key and terrific, especially Skarsgård as the more big-hearted of the gay marrieds.

Delivers a formulaic-sounding conceit with enough unpredictability and downplayed sentiment to earn the heartwarming emotions that might too easily have arrived on cue.

The kid's not all right in this appealing high-concept and surprisingly affecting romantic drama about a married gay couple who get a nasty surprise after believing they've adopted an ideal child.

In its murky light, the film is filled with details that seem utterly true...

There aren't many surprises to what follows, but one is never bored, thanks to the innate charms of Skarsgård and young Ljungman, both of whom have such sweetly hopeful smiles that it's hard not to wish them eternal happiness.
