Critic Reviews of "The Great Gilly Hopkins"Hollywood ReporterOctober 10, 2016
The Great Gilly Hopkins has its enjoyable moments - Bates' entertaining, scenery-chewing turn providing many of them - and its themes are refreshingly complex for a film targeted to kids.VarietyOctober 07, 2016
While uneven in places, "The Great Gilly Hopkins" works because it boasts an actress tough enough for the title role.RogerEbert.comOctober 07, 2016
If it can get someone who's so out of its core demographic a little verklempt, imagine what it can do for someone who's a target for such fare.New York TimesOctober 06, 2016
The title character is a child, but two adult actors, Kathy Bates and Glenn Close, really give "The Great Gilly Hopkins" its considerable heart.Los Angeles TimesOctober 06, 2016
The movie feels too hokey and retrograde to appeal to its intended young audience. There's also a miscalculated racial element that may offend or confuse.New York ObserverOctober 05, 2016
The Great Gilly Hopkins passes the time in its own way-slowly, painlessly and forgettably.School Library JournalOctober 20, 2016
The film remarkably retains the book's essence.ReelTalk Movie ReviewsOctober 09, 2016
Filled with remarkable performances, 'The Great Gilly Hopkins' pulls no punches. It is not a sickly sweet movie -- but hope and humanity shine through.Cinemalogue.comOctober 07, 2016
The material is too slight to make much of an impact outside the target demographic.Common Sense MediaOctober 07, 2016
Book-based drama has strong messages on family, friendship.Salt Lake TribuneOctober 06, 2016
The problem is one of tone, as director Stephen Herek ("Mr. Holland's Opus") takes scenes that should be earnestly serious and plays them for uncomfortable laughs.Film Journal InternationalOctober 06, 2016
The Great Gilly Hopkins is a surprisingly well-written, directed and acted family film. Darn it, it's actually engaging.
