Category Title Date Time
Film BOYCHOIR 2015-05-22 19:10:00


Director: François Girard   USA, 2014, 103 minutes

Cast: Dustin Hoffman, Debra Winger, Josh Lucas, Kathy Bates, Eddie Izzard, Garrett Wareing

The voices are the stars, while Dustin Hoffman is along to support the gifted preteen sopranos. A welcome return to feature filmmaking by “The Red Violin” director François Girard, this boarding-school drama distinguishes itself through song, thanks to the exceptional musical talents of the American Boychoir School, whose otherworldly talent lasts for only a few years at most. The mystery of where that ability comes from, coupled with the urgency to share it, lends urgency to an otherwise generic coming-of-ager sure to delight those seeking spiritually grounded, emotionally uplifting entertainment.  --Variety
