Movie Info

A family in emotional turmoil is taken by surprise in this quirky adventure where an eccentric 8-year old American boy, Wes, has an existential epiphany -- he believes that he is in fact a Mongolian goat herder. When Wes befriends a similarly displaced Indian immigrant they both decide it's their destiny to connect the child's dream to his reality through the use of crowdfunding. Their journey to the mysterious plains of Mongolia throws the boy's family further into disarray, leading his desperate mother on a trip across the world, with her son, in order to make their family whole again.

Critic Reviews for Burn Your Maps

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7)

Likable yet tonally untidy.

June 21, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

I'm not suggesting that this is an invalid subject for a movie, only that it's not one you want to see treated with on-the-nose therapeutic shallowness.

June 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Director Jordan Roberts, who also adapted the screenplay from a short story by Robyn Joy Leff, takes an affectionate but formulaic approach, mixing earnest emotional beats with requisite comedic notes to counterbalance the melodrama.

June 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Tremblay is charming as an eccentric kid marching to his own tune, but the film's attention wanders like a goat separated from its herd.

June 20, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The appeal of this gentle film rests largely on its performances.

June 20, 2019 | Full Review…

It's only the lead performers who make the proceedings remotely bearable.
