News & Interviews for Turtle Diary
Critic Reviews for Turtle Diary
What's left is not quite Delia Swallow for grown-ups; but the bland world this film inhabits is almost as quaint, complacent and parochial.
A small, eccentric, exquisitely acted comedy that manages to be as eerie as it is funny. Though it eventually seems somewhat less than the sum of its parts, it's a most engaging shaggy-turtle story.
Ben Kingsley's smile, so warm and mysterious, is the sun that shines all through "Turtle Diary."
An intelligent, witty, offbeat, and somewhat eccentric comedy based on the novel by Russell Hoban.
A film that deserves credit for its unpredictability as much as it does for its genuine warm-heartedness.
Charming little film with great performances.

Glenda Jackson and Ben Kingsley liberate turtles from an aquarium and return them to the sea in this charming, quirky comedy populated with peculiar people.

[i]I want to see it again. There are relatively few movies in this film genre.[/i]
[i]"Turtle Diary" has a good environmental theme and a pretty good love[/i]
[i]story. Shows a great love for animals, in a logical format.[/i]
