Posted Jul 5, 2005

Finding Neverland (2004)

"If it didn't have Johnny Depp as its star, Finding Neverland would barely pass muster as an average PBS Masterpiece Theatre entry." ‐New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Feb 13, 2005

The Aviator (2004)

Tuck Everlasting (2002)

"Any movie that signals the menace of a potential lynching by zooming its camera through the loop of a gallows noose cannot claim subtlety, but director Jay Russell never lets the swirling emotions of Tuck become too drippy." ‐Entertainment Weekly

Antonia (Antonia's Line) (1995)
