Critic Reviews for Stolen Childhoods
Well meaning but less than riveting in its execution, this documentary is far better suited for public television exposure than theatrical release.
Narrated by Meryl Streep, the film thoughtfully lays out the facts while highlighting various programs that aim to eliminate economic incentives to exploit children, and to return them to their families, enabling them to go to school.
Stolen Childhoods is a serious work of analysis, rooting the resistance to reform in Third World government corruption and Western profiteering.
In its reliance on emotionally loaded voiceover and its disconcertingly direct appeals for support, Len Morris' old-fashioned docu seems more designed for fund-raising pitches than theatrical release.
Meryl Streep narrates this global update on child-labor abuses with all the enthusiasm and alarm of someone reading 'The Pet Goat' to a classroom of second-graders.
