Critic Reviews for Starry Starry Night

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

The cumulative effect is more that of a handsomely crafted museum piece than a moving, emotional journey.

Top Critic

Tom Shu-Yu Lin tackles death, divorce, loneliness and first love with the eye of a painter and the heart of a child.

July 5, 2012 | Rating: 4/5
New York Times
Top Critic

A somewhat clunky family movie about childhood escapism, alternating a little too conveniently between the grim and the adorable.

July 5, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4
Seattle Times
Top Critic

[Lin] can't make up for the fact that the film wants to say more about the fragility of childhood than it's capable of communicating through its characters and their delicate, perpetually uncertain situations.

Top Critic

A whimsical coming-of-age tale that takes a common theme - growing pains - and transforms it through exquisitely rendered CG effects and a heartfelt storyline.

Top Critic

Swollen with genuine feeling -- an imaginative, emotionally resonant coming-of-age story about two young kindred spirits who seek solace in one another.
