      Tomris Laffly RogerEbert.com Likable yet tonally untidy. Rated: 2.5/4 Jun 21, 2019 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Variety I'm not suggesting that this is an invalid subject for a movie, only that it's not one you want to see treated with on-the-nose therapeutic shallowness. Jun 21, 2019 Full Review Geoff Berkshire Los Angeles Times Director Jordan Roberts, who also adapted the screenplay from a short story by Robyn Joy Leff, takes an affectionate but formulaic approach, mixing earnest emotional beats with requisite comedic notes to counterbalance the melodrama. Jun 21, 2019 Full Review Charles Koplinski Reel Talk with Chuck and Pam Beautifully shot and expertly directed, the heartfelt story, as strange as it seems on the surface, is one with which we can all connect. Rated: 3.0/4.0 Nov 20, 2020 Full Review Victor Stiff Goomba Stomp In 2017, it's no longer a given that the life we're born into is the life we're meant to live. Roberts broaches this subject with empathy, incisiveness, and class. Mar 30, 2020 Full Review Todd Jorgenson Cinemalogue By trying to bury a more serious examination of grief beneath a barrage of playful quirks, this uneven family drama diminishes its emotional impact.

      John D Good feel good movie with great story and plenty of drama and happy ending. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/26/19 Full Review karen D This movie is heartbreaking. A mother that loves her son and does all she can to support his fantasy, while trying to deal with her own life shattering loss. A husband who loves his family, but is befuddled by their insistence on indulging in wishful thinking when the obvious solution to him is dealing with real life and getting on with it. Ismail, the filmmaker who supports and inspires a child trying to live his dreams, is a pure delight who admits no impediments to living your dreams. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/07/23 Full Review Mark D If you're looking for a heartfelt, offbeat, powerful drama, be sure to check out this wonderful film. I don't know why it didn't receive more attention when it was released, but that's Hollywood for you. It features some outstanding performances, gorgeous settings, and a beautiful story. Wes (Jacob Tremblay is an eccentric young boy. His parents, Alise (Vera Farmiga) and Connor (Marton Csokas) are having a difficult time moving on after the loss of a child. One day Wes decides he's actually a Mongolian goat herder. At first his parents humor him, but eventually they have to come to terms with the fact that he really believes it. Wes befriends Ismail (Sure Sharma), a twenty-something man who works at the local car wash. Ismail dreams of becoming a filmmaker, and begins documenting Wes's story. After posting clips of Wes on social media, the young man becomes an international celebrity. Then, Wes is off to Mongolia with his mom to meet with his peeps. And of course, Ismail is along for the ride to document the journey. This is one of those films that you can't help but fall in love with. It's an emotional, tear-jerker that'll have you puddling up.more than once. The actors all do a great job, especially Jacob Tremblay. I think we're going to see a lot more of this young lad. Bravo! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/14/23 Full Review John B I enjoyed this one overall even thought it was a bit quirky, still a good story about a family struggling to get through family challenges together. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/06/23 Full Review Shirley S Bad message, that we need to change the truth Not clarifying for kids what's imagination and whats real Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/02/22 Full Review dax h Ridiculous story. Vera Farmiga's character, the mom, irritated me with her irrational behavior and decisions. I know it's a movie, so suspend your disbelief, but come on, her decisions and behavior could only lead to a good ending in a ridiculous movie.
