  • Readers who regard Gibran as source of profound wisdom will delight in this celebration of his work; skeptics who dismiss his poetry as portentous and overblown should wait for the disc to come out and enjoy the imagery with the sound on low. Full Review

  • This collection of eight mini-sermons falls flat. Full Review

  • Lovely at times but something of a bore as a whole, the film's wisdom is too adult for kids and its story too simple for grown-ups. Full Review

  • A work of essential spiritual enlightenment, elegantly interpreted by nine of the world's leading independent animators, all tied up and wrapped in a family-friendly bow by "The Lion King" director Roger Allers. Full Review
