Rating: 2/4 -- The problem is one of tone, as director Stephen Herek ("Mr. Holland's Opus") takes scenes that should be earnestly serious and plays them for uncomfortable laughs. Full Review

The Great Gilly Hopkins is a surprisingly well-written, directed and acted family film. Darn it, it's actually engaging. Full Review

[It's] two adult actors, Kathy Bates and Glenn Close, really give THE GREAT GILLY HOPKINS its considerable heart....[It's] affecting because of these two reliable stars.

The Great Gilly Hopkins has its enjoyable moments - Bates' entertaining, scenery-chewing turn providing many of them - and its themes are refreshingly complex for a film targeted to kids. Full Review

Product Description:

A smart-mouthed 12-year-old girl (Sophie Nelisse) bounces around from one foster home to the next, causing trouble at each stop with her unruly behavior. A kindhearted woman (Kathy Bates) eventually takes her in and breaks through the child's rough exterior, becoming the mother she's never had in this emotional comedy-drama from director Stephen Herek. Glenn Close, Octavia L. Spencer, and Julia Stiles co-star.
