Debut director Ejiofor gives us a unique perspective. Reminiscent of Oscar winner "Tsotsi," or the gut-wrenching, perfect film "Moolaadé," this is a story that should be explored.

Oscar-nominated actor-turned-director Chiwetel Ejiofor creates a powerful sense of desperation for his beautifully-written characters to struggle and fight against.

The film remains too mannered for its own good; it's unquestionably nice and well-intentioned, but lacking momentum.

There's never a question of how The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind will end, but that doesn't deter from the moment of triumph it delivers.

When the triumphs of the human, agricultural and engineering spirits arrive, they work. It's moving, and it's earned. Ejiofor is off and running as a director.

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind is respectfully restrained to a fault, but its earnest and authentic outlook provides the biopic with a beating heart.

It builds realism and context into both sides of that story and manages to be a winning adaptation as a result.

Though hobbled by an obviousness that dampens any suspense, this sensitive, environmentally concerned movie is most successful when steeped in the particularities of its location.
