All Critics (34) | Top Critics (14) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (15)

  • "Simon and the Oaks" branches out in ways unusual and interesting enough to hold your attention and then even shake it a bit.

  • The sheer sincerity of everyone concerned bolsters the whole enterprise so that Ohlin's historical novel-on-film holds us.

    November 2, 2012 | Full Review…
  • "Simon and the Oaks" is not merely the story of two boys from opposite sides of the tracks. It's also a larger meditation on life's hardships and what endures: love, art and civilization.

    October 26, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • With its fool's-gold cinematography, over-emphatic musical score and self-important protagonist, "Simon and the Oaks" is a puny acorn that dreams it's a towering achievement.

    October 25, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a warmly done family and personal drama that seems to cover familiar territory, but only up to a point and very much in its own way.

    October 18, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • With beautiful period trappings and picturesque backdrops, the film doesn't skimp on visual details, though the resulting product is inert.
