Critic Reviews for Tim

All Critics (2)

Tim comes close to reproducing the plot of Doubt, in negative-space fashion. That is, for this go-round, we spend all our time with the uncomprehending kid (if he is uncomprehending?) and his teacher-nurturer-desirer.

The slight sentimental film is nothing special.
