Critic Reviews for Norman

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (5)

  • Byrd and Jenkins earn the film its critical points, but the screenplay has too many moments that feel network-TV-bland.

    October 25, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • There's something sweet about Jonathan Segal's modest high school drama, "Norman," despite the contrivances of its protagonist's predicament and its stacking of the emotional deck.

    October 21, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There's a winning emotional truth in the father-son scenes in this Spokane-shot sleeper, directed with skill and sensitivity by Jonathan Segal.

    October 21, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • For first-time screenwriter Wingate and Segal, in only his second feature (2004's "The Last Run), it's impressive work - they never overplay the pity card, opting for insight into the complexities of growing up instead.

    October 20, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A disquieting outing with little in the way of honest payoff.

    October 20, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The director, Jonathan Segal, skillfully builds on the tension that this situation creates, though he can't quite make Wingate's ending click. Still, Segal is so good with his actors that you may not mind.

  • Affecting drama about terminal illness has mature themes.

    June 3, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A small film with nicely etched performances, assembled in a way that is consistently engaging and surprising. How many movies can you say that about?
