December Boys

Critics Consensus

December Boys' location and settings are invitingly gorgeous, but the coming-of-age drama that takes place on them is uneventful and far too sentimental.

Audience Reviews for December Boys

    It's nothing new and original, it's the same old story about orphans. Daniel Radcliffe did a good job in the angry bits, but felt a bit awkward acting the love scene. I liked the ending though.

    I liked it! But it's pretty lacky with the plot!

    Just lovely. A nice heartwarming movie to watch on a cool Saturday afternoon. This film showcases the fact that Daniel Radcliffe <I>can</I> act and is not limited to just a boy wizard.

    This hopeless excuse for a story doesn?t pull on any heart strings. I think the problem is that I dont really give a flying fuck what happens to these little cunt ass motherfucking gay incest little boys, so in affect I dont really care who the people choose and any attempt for tear jerking fails completely. Overall this movie isnt very good.
