    [A] sweet if not very credible film.

    The dependable Australian actor Guy Pearce is always welcome, even in a well-meaning dud like 33 Postcards.

    The main problem is the criminal subplot, full of Aussie villains snarling “mate” at one another and landing bloodless punches on Dean. 33 Postcards is what happens when someone grafts a prison angle onto “Pollyanna” — the tough guys just get in the way.

    Equal parts thriller and feel-good inspirational tale, 33 Postcards succeeds mainly in provoking the viewer’s sense of disbelief.

    There’s no explaining the presence of Guy Pearce in Pauline Chan’s sappy, atonal family drama. But it’s easy enough to understand why he looks so uncomfortable throughout.

    Pauline Chan's film is a jumbled mixture of redemptive uplift and genre hijinks.
