What the press would say:

Lasse Hallstrom directs an emotionally powerful cast in an emotionally powerful story. Each performance is crisp and loyal to the novel's characters. Tom Hanks and Toby Maguire are brilliant as the two main characters, while Christian Bale surprises many as the morbid Dr. Parcival. The costumes, Makeup and art direction give the story a classic air and help to deliver the authenticity of the story.
