Much like her character holds together her family, Harris's warm and robust performance holds together Sunshine.

Sunshine has done the impossible by reinventing the concept of "high stakes," it's a marvelous treat...gripping and beautiful, twining the music of the spheres with the reptilian brain inside us all.

... a visionary odyssey with a grace and awe and visual scope that calls to mind Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey for a new millennium...

Danny Boyle's sci-fi thriller is enjoyable, well acted and packed with references throughout although it abandons its fascinating premise for a disappointingly conventional finale.

Sunshine is the definitive Jewish Experience movie. Beautifully told with heartbreaking eloquence, it is mandatory viewing if one intends to understand what it means to be a Jew living in the world.

Sunshine never gets more than an inch below the surface of the characters. Szabo keeps his stories smushed into compact little episodes, each designed to do little more than move everything forward.

The key to the film's success is Ralph Fiennes, who does a dazzling job of portraying three of the sons of the house of Sonnenschein...

Charts the ways in which many of the characters tarnish their souls through the decisions they make.

Szabo furthermore keeps a brisk, smart pace that prevents 170 minutes from ever feeling like a burden.

'Sunshine' is a Cliff's Notes on the Lessons of Assimilation which even the pre-Bar Mitzvah set will find unconvincing.
