A flat and listless piece of moviemaking, a monotonous indie dirge.

A lyrical and bitterly sad drama about boys ruined by war, Alexandre Moors's film succeeds on style while falling short on plot.

Even though a lot of it looks gorgeous and carries the whiff of great importance it is ultimately stunted by a central event that isn’t worth the mystery that surrounds it.

"The Yellow Birds" ... takes the form of a detective story, albeit one in which the mystery is as drearily protracted as it is ultimately unpersuasive.

An excellent novel about the Iraq War and its homefront fallout has been turned into a rather flat and disappointing film in The Yellow Birds.
