Once again I disagree with the critics consensus. This film was not at all what I would call sentimental and more storm and stress than most coming-of-age flicks I have seen. It was a very well done film, even if Daniel Craig was a bit old for the part.

OK story but I'm sick of lazy producers that can not use the correct props and music for the stated time period, (the 60's). Brand new 2006 motorcycles, a triumph that sounds like a Harley, music from 1978. WHAT A LAZY HACK!

Nice story, we'll told but not enough fun? It seemed very dramatic and left me feeling sad. Never read the book so not sure if that was the overall tone of the book too, but would have liked a little more of the light hearted side of the tale. All the actors were outstanding and the cinematography spot on. Over all a good story, we'll acted but missing something.

Not touching, with a lack of originality and a lack of interest, December Boys bring to us a movie with a predictable narrative and poorly acted.

Pas grand chose à en dire... C'est un bon film quand on ne sait pas quoi regarder, mais c'est tout...

The movie grew on me, and I think I partially liked it because I visited one of these places in Australia, Stewart House, built to give children a visit at the sea as escape from whatever is happening in their lives.

Though it is slow to begin with, I ended up really loving this and ended up with a few tears in the ending, which I didn't see coming. The ensemble nature of the characters means that Daniel Radcliff doesn't stand out at all, which was good - no thoughts of Harry Potter, due also to his spot-on Aussie accent.

The 4 boys will charm you. Their performances seem very natural and fluid. It is a very touching story. I had a few laughs as well. Of course, I ended up crying, LOL! Family is so much more than a blood thing. DECEMBER BOYS!!! Ha! Vayan a verla. Esta en Fine Arts ahora mismo (Octubre)

There is nothing new about this its the same story about orphans Daniel Radcliffe is quite good in this & there is some good photography but it falls short of its potential.

Nobody likes this film ... but what can I say? I thought 'December Boys' was a lovely movie. That sounds gay, but it's the best way I can describe it. The film is overly sentimental, but God hep me, I'm a sucker for sentimentality. And as a fan of Daniel Radcliffe - an actor who, while not always at his best, does have an interesting style and originality which I think (and hope) will continue to guide him further than the restrictions cast upon him by portraying Harry Potter - I enjoyed this for the fact that he does prove himself capable of playing someone else. The mystical quality gained by the alluring Australian location serves an equally important part in making this movie more interesting than it otherwise might have been, and from what I've heard, the storyline in the original novel is much more eventful and involving. But there you have it. 'December Boys' is what it is, and while I can understand why most people dislike it, I found it thoroughly enjoyable, and quite emotionally moving.

Tem uma bela fotografia, mas é extremamente esquemático e clichê.

It's not bad but not superb.

for me, only the last half is good enough, when the character who's playing Daniel Radcliffe realize what the real life is...
