Thankfully devoid of the fantasy elements endemic to so many cinematic versions of YA novels, Kepler's Dream proves a modest but diverting family film charmer.
There's plenty of intrigue on the New Mexico ranch our heroine is shunted off to in "Kepler's Dream," but little suspense is wrung from it in this tepid family drama adapted from a well-reviewed YA novel by Juliet Bell.
This family-friendly drama may be inspired by a 17th-century book of the same name by the visionary astronomer, but the movie "Kepler's Dream" lacks imagination.
Kepler's Dream is a study in family dynamics that's sweet without being too saccharine.
As the story progresses, the dramatic elements become quietly gripping, even with the absence of suspense or genuine surprises
Sweet family drama has heart and positive messages.
An innocuous if rather bland family movie that should appeal especially to teenage girls [but] it would be more at home on the Hallmark Channel than at a multiplex.
... heartfelt and modestly charming, yet the flat characters and contrived screenplay don't offer much incentive for emotional investment.
Glazer keeps the movie engaging and moving for all ages, making sure a tender story is preserved for its big screen adaptation. Those on the hunt for an amiable production just might find plenty to like here.
