Critic Reviews for The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind
Ejiofor captures perfectly the heart of a town struggling to prosper, a family fighting to survive, and a young boy who just wants to keep the world as he knows it alive and well.
This is a promising debut from Ejiofor - and further proof of Netflix's willingness to invest in stories which other studios might deem less commercially viable.
Not make this simply a portrait of victimhood, but a deeply informed and fully expressed portrait of a culture most of us (including this critic) knew little about.
It builds realism and context into both sides of that story and manages to be a winning adaptation as a result.
The film remains too mannered for its own good; it's unquestionably nice and well-intentioned, but lacking momentum.
