Wondrous Oblivion about cricket which is a common passion to 11-year old David, a son of German Jewish refugees, and Dennis, a Jamaican immigrant.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times

    Aiming for the tough-minded nostalgia of John Boorman's "Hope and Glory," writer-director Paul Morrison catches both the innocence of childhood and its unconscious cruelty.

  • 60

    Variety Derek Elley

    Full of charming moments, but swinging hither and thither between mainstream entertainment and an over-cooked anti-racist tract.

  • 50

    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    Form and content fight to the death in Wondrous Oblivion, Paul Morrison's defiantly gauzy tale of racial friction in 1960s England.
