Reviews:
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] warm and lovely fantasy....Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton are appealing together as far from perfect parents, and CJ Adams has that ability of so many child actors to be pitch-perfect." - 08/14/2012 Chicago Sun-Times


3 stars out of 5 -- "It's a magical film in the vein of E.T. where an otherworldly event changes a family forever....Funny, different, touching and full of heart -- it's not just perfect entertainment for the whole family, it's about the importance of family." - 08/13/2012 Box Office


"A fairy tale about parenting that stays kid-friendly without completely glossing over the darker themes of its premise..." - 08/12/2012 Hollywood Reporter


3 stars out of 5 -- "This is the sort of family film they rarely make anymore, a gentle small-town tale of wounded, decent souls and the wide-eyed child who offers salvation....[W]ith strong performances..." - 03/28/2013 Empire
