Hicks' film is a beautiful trifle, a neat trick of light and sound to coax empathy

If good cinematographers are 'panning for gold' with their camera lens, Sobocinski has put his pan in the river and come back with a fortune.
| Original Score: B+

The film has a lot of nice little touches going for it, and while there are the obligatory moments of heartstring plucking underscored by the stir of violins, it never really overdoes things. The only problem is, it's just been so done already.

This movie invokes a sense of nostalgia and a yearning for those childhood friends who, as we grow older, may be forgotten but will never be replaced.

Una cinta tierna y emocionante por momentos...pero no termina por convencer.
| Original Score: 7.5/10

The elegiac, reflective mood is treated almost incidentally, letting it earn a reaction naturally

Likeable, nostalgic movie that walks a smooth tightrope between a coming-of-age tale and a dark, long-forgotten Twilight Zone episode.

As I write this review, I find myself growing nostalgic for the film. I want to walk away from my computer and see it again right now. It's just that good.

Director Scott Hicks imbues this fascinating coming-of-age drama with remarkable scenes and an astonishingly rich collection of performances.
