Ejiofor brings a real sensitivity and empathy to this material, as well as some bold, fluent storytelling.
Competently mounted yet plodding, it's manifestly a labor of love that becomes a bit of a labor to watch.
As inspiring and morally upright as you'd expect from a film with such rousing source material drawn from real life.
Ejiofor's compassionate script, adapted from William's 2009 memoir, is finely attuned to the cold realities that confront its warm characters.
It's a conventional film in many ways but one that slowly and effectively builds to a remarkably rousing climax, displaying an act of overwhelming ingenuity that's hard to deny.
Made with the intelligence and good taste one expects from Ejiofor, the involving film cares about much more than the sweeping images of triumph with which it inevitably closes.
Chiwetel Ejiofor announces himself as a sensitive, shrewdly restrained filmmaker with his quietly assured directorial debut.
An affecting true story of African self-help.
A story about contemporary Africans which may have more teachable moments than unexpected contours, but comes good in the end.
Little touches like these announce that Ejiofor, probably best known for 12 Years a Slave, is a natural film-maker. As screenwriter too, he crafts lovely lines.
Conventionally emotional and wholly felt, Ejiofor has chosen here a worthwhile story and taken full, earnest control of its telling.
The tone of the film emphasises the epic quality of the story, even as it eschews triumphalism.
