Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Adapted from John Irving's evocative novel with rare sensitivity, a tender and poignant drama stirs viewers' emotions as few films have in recent years. It begins during the early '40s in a ramshackle Maine orphanage, where Dr. Larch (Michael Caine) cares for unwanted children and performs illegal abortions. His oldest charge and reluctant protégé, Homer Wells (Tobey Maguire), yearns to make his own way in the world and begins by hiring out as an apple-picker for nearby orchard owner Wally (Paul Rudd). After Wally goes off to war, his beautiful girlfriend, Candy (Charlize Theron), succumbs to loneliness and teaches Homer some life lessons Dr. Larch had overlooked. Caine is superb in his Oscar-winning role, but all the performances are wonderful -- Maguire brings sweetness and depth to his character, while is Theron is utterly believable as a free-spirited dream girl. Director Lasse Hallstrom (My Life as a Dog) recreates the period beautifully and exhibits a keen understanding of class distinctions between orphaned Homer, well-to-do Wally, and the itinerant workers led by Mr. Rose (Delroy Lindo). Filled with warmth, humor, and pathos, The Cider House Rules is an enormously uplifting, life-affirming movie.

This really was a great movie. I figured it was gonna be another boring one, but it really wasn't. I watched the whole thing. It was sad and funny and everything else. I can't wait to see it again.

I loved this movie, but the uneccesary sex scenes ruined it for me. If I wanted to see that, I'd rent porn, and I don't want to! I'd reccomend it to my friends, but they wouldn't want to see that either. Clean it up, and it'd be a five star movie!!

This movie taking place in an orphanage in Maine grabs you from the very first moment. The children, the nurses, the doctor-played by Michael Caine- and especially Toby McGuire's character, are examples of outstanding acting. The orphans expecially, bring you to tears. Toby McGuire shows such a sweet spirit but also exhibits a strong stubborness about his future. His eyes are opened at the Cider House but he still maintains his sweet, loving demeanor. This is the type of film you want to share with your family and encourage them to drink in the essence of the luckiness of being part of a family.

This was a very enjoyable movie about a young man coming of age and learning about the world. It is worth watching over and over.
