Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's good, but it ought to be better and it isn't."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"An enticing drama about the eternal clash between reason and the magical realm of enchantment."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A film with no discernable point of view that's directed at no definable audience."
‑ Maria Garcia, Film Journal International
"It's Arthur Rackham vs the Adult/Capitalist/Industrial Revolution - the obsession with exploiting the extraordinary and making it ordinary."
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"Charming special effects and appealing heroines, and truly an ambitious meditation on the nature of fantasy and reality and growing up."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
