  • 2 stars beginning was good, definitely slowed down. the child actor overacted and it became very annoying. agreed with the other commenter, could have been three separate stories...couldn't sit through it in one viewing.
  • 5 stars an excellent movie with a very unique and touching story. brilliant acting by the young boy!
  • 2 stars very slow and boring. the 1st half hour was interesting. this could have been a short story, maybe 1 of 3 stories involving 9/11. reviews here are very misleading.
  • 5 stars incredible movie!!! such a touching story brought to life by young thomas horn and all the other actors ... deeply touching from beginning to end (bring a box of tissues!) ...
  • 5 stars much better than i expected. actually i wasn't sure what to expect really. it showed through a child so many things wrong with why we disconnect with each other for human social relations, be those totally afar off, or even those so close, that we are all strangers to each other, that we seem to be taught out of 'fear' for 'safety' that we have the license to maintain 'estrangement'. and that we end up oblivious to why things happen to us, and so many things never get fully resolved (such is life and death) and the grieving process of any big loss in life. worth the see. i cried so many times.
  • 4 stars i found this film quite melancholy - it isn't about 9/11 but takes place on 9/11 so it's in the background throughout. maybe that's what makes it sad for me. great acting by the kid, though. i remember him from jeopardy!
  • i have mixed feelings about the movie. i was annoyed with the leading child actor (don't know his name). i think the movie had great potential but something was amiss.
  • 5 stars don't go if you want fluff. this is a powerful movie about grief and recovery, and how sorrow and joy don't exist in a vacuum from each other.
  • 5 stars outstanding performances, depicts losing a parent very well, it's a nice change that we finally see a movie about a child and what the children went through after 9/11. best movie i have seen in a very long time.
  • 2 stars couldn't stand it... very slow moving.. the premise for the story was not convincing and did not even make sense - and the max von sydow character goes along with it all?? one of the slowest movies i have ever seen, though some of the ideas the tom hanks character shared with his son were interesting.
