      Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter The Great Gilly Hopkins has its enjoyable moments - Bates' entertaining, scenery-chewing turn providing many of them - and its themes are refreshingly complex for a film targeted to kids. Oct 10, 2016 Full Review Peter Debruge Variety While uneven in places, "The Great Gilly Hopkins" works because it boasts an actress tough enough for the title role. Oct 7, 2016 Full Review Glenn Kenny RogerEbert.com If it can get someone who's so out of its core demographic a little verklempt, imagine what it can do for someone who's a target for such fare. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 7, 2016 Full Review Kent Turner School Library Journal The film remarkably retains the book's essence. Rated: 3/4 Oct 20, 2016 Full Review Betty Jo Tucker ReelTalk Movie Reviews Filled with remarkable performances, 'The Great Gilly Hopkins' pulls no punches. It is not a sickly sweet movie -- but hope and humanity shine through. Oct 9, 2016 Full Review Todd Jorgenson Cinemalogue The material is too slight to make much of an impact outside the target demographic. Oct 7, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews

      Emilliano Jr S Wasted a great talents of cast. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Apaixonantemente lindo, pensei erroneamente tratar-se de um filme infantil fofinho, entretanto a história é pesada e triste, retratada de forma mais leve, mas não menos dolorosa, baseada no livro infantil, mas com tema bem adulto e muitas dores de abandono e solidão... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Sweet and humble performances, particularly Bates at her recent best, over cringey awkward writing swerved as proof in favorably conventional avoidance for decent unfinished narrative satisfaction with a minimal heart. (B) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Normally not my type of movie, this movie was an exception. This had a tremendous cast led off by a remarkable young actress I'd never seen. Sophie Nelisse gave a powerful performance and one I will not forget anytime too soon. The story was emotionally humorous, dramatic and honest. I will be looking forward to see what Sophie Nelisse has to offer in the future. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Above average kid's movie. Not as dark as Paterson's other novel Bridge to Terabithia but it still has enough rough edges to make it refreshingly blunt. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Es una historia bien elaborada, con toques de humor y momentos sentimentales.
