4.5 out of 10 Compelling and beautifully done
Jim from Dublin, 05 Oct 2012
It was only after watching this that I realised it was from the same director who gave us "Billy Elliot" and "The Reader". Now that makes sense. It has the same lovely cinematography and sensitive touch. Not exactly a barrel of laughs, given its main theme, but well worth seeing, in my opinion. Great performance from the boy who plays the main role, and a terrific, surprisingly understated performance from Sandra Bullock as the mother. Great twist at the end. Highly recommended.

4.5 out of 10 Will bring a tear, even to the non-sentimental.
Niall from Cork, 01 May 2013
I guess I'm a little biased knowing a little of the main character's condition but this is a truly magnificent movie. I avoided watching it for a while as I knew the general story and thought it would be overly sad or sentimental or some other soppy judgmental thing. In fact it is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Dare I say it, there was a tear in my eye? I'm not the sentimental type but deep down? It's good. Watch it.

2 out of 10 Annoying and contrived
Nenad from Dublin, 12 Dec 2012
Whilst i get that the main protaganist has some form of disorder that is irrelevant to me, I found the kid well annoying and the whole story syrupy and contrived. The get-out clause twist at the end is not believable, never mind the ongoing issues with the credibility of the story.

5 out of 10 A hugely enjoyable film
Seamus from Monaghan, 07 Oct 2012
This is a brilliant film. The actors, young and old, are sublime. The whole story just brings you in and is well told. Can't recommend it enough.
