Critic Reviews of "I Capture the Castle CD1"Orlando SentinelSeptember 12, 2003
It has just enough charm to be watchable.Miami HeraldAugust 22, 2003
The filmmakers can't seem to unearth the novel's inherent lightheartedness and instead treat too many events with earnest seriousness, trampling the original story's lively spirit in heavy-handed drama.Houston ChronicleAugust 08, 2003
With eloquent dialogue but scant smoldering passions, the mushy machinations nicely nudge director Tim Fywell's gentle little film.Detroit Free PressAugust 08, 2003
Dollops on the usual romantic, family and class conflicts with a very heavy ladle, which pretty much smothers the whimsical mood Fywell strains so hard to attain.Dallas Morning NewsAugust 07, 2003
A refreshingly mature look at first love and life's often-rough transitions.Denver PostJuly 25, 2003
Never shies from indulging us and our desire for a gentle and generous world that doesn't slip into easy answers.Boulder WeeklyFebruary 09, 2004
...mines the rich veins of both Austen and Fitzgerald. But Fywell lets his focus wander. By the end Castle seems to come apart stone by stone.Roanoke Times (Virginia)October 20, 2003
The fancy-pants accents and period costuming make one feel intellectually smug, as if the afternoon had been spent watching a Merchant-Ivory film - only without the tedium of actually sitting through a Merchant-Ivory film.About.comOctober 14, 2003
Romala Garai is utterly convincing as the smart, wistful girl with the notebook.Capital Times (Madison, WI)October 09, 2003
A quirky and handsome family drama that nicely captures the pangs and pleasures of adolescence.Kansas City StarOctober 03, 2003
The film is a charmer. It's romantic, funny and satisfying.Orlando WeeklySeptember 12, 2003
Better on set-up than follow-through.
