Critic Reviews for A Boy Called Po

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (3)

A Boy Called Po is clearly a personal project for everyone involved (many of them have autistic children themselves), and it mostly does what it set out to do.

Top Critic

An earnest drama that could have used a subtler, less didactic approach to its tender subject matter.

November 24, 2016 | Full Review…

While overflowing with good intentions, this woefully contrived drama tackles autism, bullying, single parenting and the grieving process without providing sufficient insight into any of them.

September 8, 2017 | Full Review…

Weepy tale of widowed father's struggles with autistic son.

September 1, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Generally well-acted and well-intentioned, but sentimental and sloppy as it outstays its welcome.
