Weir infuses the film with his customary mysticism, but more importantly, draws sensitive performances from his largely inexperienced cast.

The movie undercuts Mr. Williams's exceptionally fine performance, making the character seem more of a dubious fool than is probably intended.

Not the worst of the countless recent movies about good kids and hidebound, authoritatian older people. It may, however, be the most shameless in its attempt to pander to an adolescent audience.

An often overlooked screen gem. It's notable also for a baby-faced Ethan Hawke and a premium performance from Robin Williams.
