Critic Reviews for Adventures of Sebastian Cole

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (7)

Given so many vapid young would-be stars foisted upon the public by the Hollywood machinery, it is a rare delight indeed to come across one with actual talent and potential.

February 5, 2004 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A ponderous, uneven portrait of disaffected youth.

June 13, 2002 | Rating: C | Full Review…

The filmmaker shows no talent at storytelling, leaving the movie to live or die on the basis of the characters it creates. And none of them, save Hank/Henrietta, are compelling.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Incorporates all the quirky, derivative elements of modern-day, oh-so-sensitive B-movies, with nary a breath of fresh air to justify its determined whimsy.

January 1, 2000 | Full Review…

An affectionate coming-of-age tale.
