  • Shot solemnly, the film feels a little cold and distant. However, among other things, it's worst seeing just to enjoy the view, the culture and the music the Dominican Republic has offer. [Full review in Spanish]

    May 5, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Gently moving with raw performances by Geraldine Chaplin and Yanet Mojica and a quietly powerful and haunting ending that compensate for lack of depth in the screenplay.

Audience Reviews for Sand Dollars

  • Dec 18, 2015
    Geraldine Chaplin delivers such a powerful and touching performance, not ashamed of showing her age and vulnerability, but the film, though appropriately raw and realistic, lacks in depth and doesn't explore so well its themes and what it wants to say to become memorable.
