While some of the sloppy filmmaking can be forgiven, the film's core message cannot.

The elements are in place but they don't add up to great drama in this well-meant effort to personalize the plight of illiterate people.

The ending, despite good intentions, is American cinema at its tackiest and most hollow.
July 6, 2005
Although the construction is somewhat haphazard, the intention is well meaning and DeNiro gives a characteristically sensitive rendering.
| Original Score: 2/5

McAlpine may be the movie's smartest contributor. He alone seems to realize that this pedantic project will soon be graduating into home-video or classroom use.

Here, in a movie less animated than a barrel of tree sloths, Ritt encourages stale performances and a pace as dull as more tree sloths.

There is also a good supporting cast here, and Fonda is effective in her role. But it's DeNiro who shines with a very affecting performance, as well as a natural chemistry with Fonda.
