It will not teach you very much about either autism or Metallica, but you will leave the theater smiling.

Top Critic

The literal and emotional voyage that gives this sweet, touching and often funny doc its shape resists any temptation to overegg the self-discovery pudding.

Top Critic

Ultimately this is a film about overcoming adversity, facing your fears, family bonding and the power of music to reach anybody and everybody.

The List

The film, which plays a little like a real-life Rain Man, may be a bit rough around the edges but that only adds to its charm. Kate and Will show their relationship with their brother in all its messiness.

Never mind the bickering and cajoling: this is a lovely, generous chronicle of a lovely, generous gesture.

You'll cry a bit come the tense, touching climax - then punch the air with joy.
