Critic Reviews for Approved for Adoption

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (10)

  • This 2012 feature is melancholy for a movie about childhood (probably too much so to appeal to children), but the intimate storytelling is appealing all the same.

    February 28, 2014 | Full Review…
  • "Approved for Adoption" is tough and tender, a rich resource for anyone who has been adopted, and anyone who plans to adopt.

    November 21, 2013 | Full Review…
  • The archival clips are eye-opening, and the animation, with its lovely subdued palette, is alive with the pains, joys and rascal spirit of childhood.

    November 21, 2013 | Full Review…
  • The movie is not always well unified and sequenced, but that seems to reflect Mr. Henin's ambivalence over a past that's like a book he is at once rereading and rewriting.

    November 7, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Watching the animated memoir Approved for Adoption can stir a serenity like skipping stones on water for a delightfully long time.

    November 5, 2013 | Full Review…
  • It's impossible not to be charmed on some level by Jung Henin and Laurent Boileau's Approved for Adoption, though it's best not to ask for too much.
