  1. Although clearly a labor of love for its creator, this coming-of-age tale about a life-changing summer for a young man dreaming of becoming an artist lacks the dramatic momentum to propel audience interest.

    Alas, even the soft-hearted may find this formulaic yarn of a young man's apprenticeship to a cantankerous artist too rosy-hued and treacly.

    A lot of thought went into this film, but somehow it lacks the dramatic impact to make it really work. It's too slow moving and the fine performances don't make up for the pace. Well photographed. Full Review »

    Not for the cynical. If you love heartfelt, powerful cinema, this movie is for you.
