Critic Reviews for Simon and the Oaks
"Simon and the Oaks" branches out in ways unusual and interesting enough to hold your attention and then even shake it a bit.
The sheer sincerity of everyone concerned bolsters the whole enterprise so that Ohlin's historical novel-on-film holds us.
"Simon and the Oaks" is not merely the story of two boys from opposite sides of the tracks. It's also a larger meditation on life's hardships and what endures: love, art and civilization.
With its fool's-gold cinematography, over-emphatic musical score and self-important protagonist, "Simon and the Oaks" is a puny acorn that dreams it's a towering achievement.
It's a warmly done family and personal drama that seems to cover familiar territory, but only up to a point and very much in its own way.
