Movie Info

Filmed over five years, CHASING WONDERS is a heart-warming story of a young boy, who, encouraged by his grandfather to live a life of hope and possibility, takes off on the adventure of a lifetime to find the magical Emu Plains. His journey through the lush landscapes of Australia and Spain leads him to the heart of the human condition -- learning to acknowledge the complexity of what comes before us but struggling not to be defined by the past.

Critic Reviews for Chasing Wonders

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

Sometimes visually arresting, the story filmed in Australia and Spain comes to a conclusion that seems contrived and forced.

June 4, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

In spite of its tidy running time, "Chasing Wonders" is diffuse and often limp.

June 3, 2021 | Full Review…

As far as "coming-of-age" yarns go the film predictably touches on the importance of "being yourself", an age-old theme that has become something of a genre cliché, though it is thoughtfully handled here...with a fine performance from Michael Crisafulli.

...a thoughtful coming-of-age story, illuminated with knowing, heartfelt performances...

November 9, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This well-acted, interestingly executed coming-of-age story explores issues of immigration, family trauma, and abuse.

Ultimately wins its audience over with a visually sumptuous pallet, an endearing turn from the young [Michael] Crisafulli, and an assertive positive family temperament.
