Critics Consensus

Boychoir rests heavily -- and not always comfortably -- on the shoulders of Dustin Hoffman, whose typically excellent work isn't always quite enough to compensate for an overly predictable drama.

Movie Info

From acclaimed director François Girard (The Red Violin) comes the inspirational story of a rebellious kid with a remarkable gift who is challenged by a demanding teacher to make the most unlikely of dreams come true. A stellar ensemble - including two-time Oscar-winner Dustin Hoffman, Oscar-winner Kathy Bates, two-time Emmy winner Eddie Izzard, three-time Oscar-nominee Debra Winger, Josh Lucas (A Beautiful Mind) and Kevin McHale (Glee) - headline a cast that also introduces an exciting group of newcomers as the young singers who battle each other as they take their boychoir to the competitive heights.(C) Official FaceBook

  • Manipulative and unabashedly sentimental, The Choir carries loud echoes of other better movies.

  • Sure, the plot points are in place - mother's alcoholism, mother's death, father's rejection - but the film spends all of 30 seconds on each arc, successfully draining Stet's story of any poignancy and passion.

  • Giving every impression of not knowing what day it is, or what year, Dustin Hoffman sleepwalks his way through this passionless, pompous film ...

  • Imagine Whiplash chewed up and regurgitated as a series of smirking, sanctimonious Hallmark greetings cards.

  • You'll be screeching louder than the kids before the curtain falls.

    Jul 6, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Boychoir's formula is as old as The Ugly Duckling but Girard has revitalised it with a sublime score, a craftily mixed cast of new faces and big names, along with a setting that provides room for the occasional burst of originality.
