Movie Info

For 12 year old, TALIESIN JONES (JEAN-PAUL MACLEOD), life on a Welsh hill farm is full of uncertainty. His Mum (GERALDINE JAMES) leaves home and Taliesin is left behind with his distracted father (JONATHAN PRYCE), his sullen brother (MATTHEW RHYS) and his own quest for answers. After seeing his elderly, piano teacher Billy Evans (IAN BANNEN) perform a miracle, Taliesin is inspired in his search for answers to life's biggest questions, for he needs a miracle of his own. Billy strikes a deal with Taliesin: if he continues to practice the piano, he will give him the key to miracles. Belief comes with a price and will change his life forever. -- © 2002 Impact Entertainment

Critic Reviews for Taliesin Jones

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

A sweet, tender sermon about a 12-year-old Welsh boy more curious about God than girls, who learns that believing in something does matter.

Dallas Morning News
Top Critic

A film about a young man finding God that is accessible and touching to the marrow.

Seattle Times
Top Critic

Succumbs to the same kind of maudlin, sentimental mysticism that mars the Touched by an Angel school of non-God spiritual-uplift movies.

Denver Post
Top Critic

Certainly warm-hearted and well-intentioned...but its eagerness to be uplifting is ultimately more calculated than inspiring, and its message is more than a little muddled.

One Guy's Opinion

The issue of faith is not explored very deeply

February 26, 2002
Filmcritic.com

Screenwriter Maureen Tilyou, director Martin Duffy and an extremely competent cast handle the controversial aspects of the topic in an even-handed manner.
