Critic Reviews for The Tic Code
For me, it's just a little too restrained, with too many false notes.
The Tic Code is the summer's surprise gift, a loving and humane film that rises above the season's overhyped blockbusters like a flower poking up through the concrete.
Raising it above the usual clichés are the superb jazz music and a sparkling script by lead actress Polly Draper.
It's got more genuine-seeming feelings and a more accurate take on its particular corner of the world than a colosseum of summer blockbusters.
Starts out self-consciously but gets better as it goes along, winding up as affecting as it is illuminating.
This is the loving accomplishment of The Tic Code, to open a door onto the deepest kind of understanding.
Audience Reviews for The Tic Code
Intelligent, uplifting story. Great acting. Realistic portrayal of Tourettes Syndrome by a very talented young actor. Great music. All around nice movie....good send off for the late Gregory Hines.
An interesting story about a musically gifted young boy who also happens to suffer from Tourette's syndrome.
