  1. Alana De Roma is going to be a tremendous star.
  2. A skilled heart-tugger from Australia that verges on rock opera.
  3. 50
    If Tass had found a way to include more playfulness, her film would be more endearing. Instead, she accents the easy bathos of David Parker's script, from the problems of the shrill, cliched neighbors to a finale that plays like a movie of the week.
  4. Your ability to overlook the film's myriad contrivances will ultimately depend on how you react to little De Roma.
  5. In the end, it trivializes the psychological complexity of the girl's post-traumatic stress and betrays a game group of actors who struggle to find balance between the alternately dark drama and the silly, over-the-top melodrama.
  6. Warm of heart, modest in polish, Amy provides satisfactions that must be balanced against its flaws.
  7. 10
    Plumbs new depths of craven heartstring-yanking.
