Had never heard of this movie but ordered on rating reccomendations. Totally great movie that left us sort of (actually really) happy but emotionally upset. Really great movie.Totally excellent.
This a must see,if you like great drama.Wonderful cast and engrossing storyline.
This is a story about a boy who grows up in an orphange and then leaves to see the world. There are two underlying themes: his growing up; and that there are always rules set down for us by someone else. The film explores the issue of when is it ok to break them. Slick and well filmed drama with a heart, although a bit syruppy at times. It is an accurate adaptation of the book.
Wonderfully filmed and great story
Lovely movie...well acted, thought provoking...yep, would recommend it.
Top movie, very enjoyable to watch, young Toby played an excellent role.
great movie, about a boy growing up in a orphanage, under the guiding hand of the Doctor there (Michael Cain) florishes into a innocent man, he yearns to exolore the world, then returns to the orphanage to take over the work of his mentor
Great movie. Toby Maguire is fantastic in this movie. Have some tissues handy. Charlize Theron is also a good cast member of this movie.
As remakes go...this was disappointing. You would think that with the new technology available that there would have been something new and exciting added to this film, there wasn't.
For anyone who doesn't know the original though.. a good film.
really enjoyed this movie no idea how i missed it the year it was made, heartwarming, deep, showed real emotions and real life, if you can get deep well worth your thought process and time
An absolutely brilliant heartwarming film. A story of a young boy turning into a man and trying to work out everything in between.Brilliant!
After reading all the reviews I must say my wife and I were very disappointed. It was well made, well acted, but just really didnt seem to go anywhere, have any point and had an extremely predictable ending. Sorry guys, just don't understand the hype.
Excellent movie from beggining to end.
In my book this movie is rated with the best. Well worth the time.
Very enjoyable movie with a good storyline regarding morals. Not for everyone, but if you like a drama with a strong storyline this is well worth watching.
A very enjoyable and moving film.
a great film about moral and ethical dilemma. Superb performance from Michael Caine.
Engaging story from start to finish. Micheal Caine is excellent as the caring doctor who really cares about the orphans. Tobey Maguire is brilliant as always
Sorry, not my type of movie.
So many things 'wrong' with this movie yet it get's nominated for an Oscar. I don't know how the minds of the Academy members work. They must all be over the age of 80. If you agree with abortion, cheating, selfishness, incest/rape and enjoy watching Toby Maguire then this is the movie for you. How this guy gets roles is beyond me. Enjoy.
On one level this fil is about the silly rules set by the owners of the apple
orchard and the cider house of the title. But it is also about the ongoing debate
of the rules people try to impose on a woman's right to decide between
termination or birth. Then there is Dr Larch (Michael Caine) tring to impose his
rules on the future of the young man he has brought up (Tobey Maguire). The
film shows that all people ultimately have to make their own moral choices
about their future life. Michael Caine is excellent but Tobey Maguire as the
young man is less convincing.
Very good movie, Michael Caine and Toby McGuire are excellent. Worth watching.
Worth watching if you are in the mood for some light sentimental entertainment. An unusual casting for Michael Caine but it suits him well. Here he is more in character than his usual 'Michael Caine' self.
Excellant movie, may not be liked by everyone but never the less well worth watching!
