Critic Reviews for The Four Diamonds

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (4)

Peter Werner's directorial hand is steady as it moves between the domestic and the fanciful, and the acting is solid.

[Todd] Robinson's script, based on the late Chris Millard's own sad story - both as he wrote it in the fantasy and as he lived it out - retains striking clarity between the two tales, real and imaginary.

Top Critic

The Four Diamonds strives for a sensitive homage to its young hero, who died at 14 in 1972, but the deck is stacked against the movie.

September 27, 2019 | Full Review…

The movie moves from real-life scenes to fantasy very smoothly, thanks to Todd Robinson's script and Peter Werner's direction, and the movie is both entertaining and very moving.
