Movie Info

Two scientists fall in love and conceive the idea of cloning a Neanderthal. The result is William: the first Neanderthal to walk the earth in 35,000 years. William tries his best to fit into the world but his distinctive physical features and his unique way of thinking set him apart and provoke fear. William struggles to assert his own identity in a hostile world.

Critic Reviews for William

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7)

The question is interesting -- the way [this film] looks at it is not.

September 26, 2019 | Full Review…

The intentions here are noble, but the execution is too obvious and strained to make much of a lasting impact.

April 25, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

In Disney's hands, "William" eschews freak show theatrics for something much weightier.

April 12, 2019 | Full Review…

William simply devolves into a drab, moody morality tale for parents about not treating your kids like test subjects.

April 12, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Tim Disney's film strikes a bland compromise between science-fantasy, suspense-melodrama and family entertainment, developing no element to a level that generates more than mild interest.

April 12, 2019 | Full Review…

There is more sweetness and humanity in William than in most of the time-wasters I've seen recently.
