What to know

critics consensus

Boychoir rests heavily -- and not always comfortably -- on the shoulders of Dustin Hoffman, whose typically excellent work isn't always quite enough to compensate for an overly predictable drama. Read critic reviews

  • Manipulative and unabashedly sentimental, The Choir carries loud echoes of other better movies.

    July 16, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The notes of this tune are tear-jerkingly familiar, and there's never any doubt about the final chorus, replete with a descant line of convenient illness and last-minute substitution.

    July 12, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Sure, the plot points are in place - mother's alcoholism, mother's death, father's rejection - but the film spends all of 30 seconds on each arc, successfully draining Stet's story of any poignancy and passion.

    July 10, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Giving every impression of not knowing what day it is, or what year, Dustin Hoffman sleepwalks his way through this passionless, pompous film ...

    July 9, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Imagine Whiplash chewed up and regurgitated as a series of smirking, sanctimonious Hallmark greetings cards.

    July 9, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • I was initially attracted to seeing this film because 1) I do adore Dustin Hoffman and 2) I do adore choirs and 3) I honestly had no idea quite how rubbish it would be.
