A Boy Called Po is clearly a personal project for everyone involved (many of them have autistic children themselves), and it mostly does what it set out to do.
Well-meaning but, on the whole, intensely inert ...
An earnest drama that could have used a subtler, less didactic approach to its tender subject matter.
While overflowing with good intentions, this woefully contrived drama tackles autism, bullying, single parenting and the grieving process without providing sufficient insight into any of them.
Weepy tale of widowed father's struggles with autistic son.
Generally well-acted and well-intentioned, but sentimental and sloppy as it outstays its welcome.
There's no denying that A Boy Called Po has the best intentions at heart, but those only get a movie so far.
A Boy Called Po pours on the schmaltz and a Burt Bacharach score to sketch an oddly affecting portrait of autism.
Despite good intentions, this is a disappointing treatment of a subject that deserves better.
A simple family story which follows a predictable path but does it with grace, A Boy Called Po features impressive performances from its two leads, who have great chemistry and effectively capture a complex relationship.
A TV movie-style viewing experience, hitting conflicts and emotional beats with a sledgehammer, while the ending is borderline inexcusable.
A Boy Called Po lacks a realistic exploration of autism, falling into common tropes surrounding the depiction of autism in Hollywood films.
