“The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind” – feeds our hunger for inspiring tales in these desperate times with a beautifully engineered narrative latticework of hardship, hope, and know-how.” – Los Angeles Times
“It builds realism and context into both sides of that story and manages to be a winning adaptation as a result.” – The Atlantic
