Herald Sun - Switched On - - Weekly Preview -

★★★ Lav­ish adap­ta­tion of the Jonathan Safran Foer best­seller. Has some pow­er­ful mo­ments, but this tale of a boy (Thomas Horn) roam­ing New York City in the wake of his fa­ther’s death in the 9/11 at­tacks strays into mawk­ish sen­ti­men­tal­ity.
