AllMusic Review by

Director Burr Steers’ film adaptation of author Ben Sherwood’s The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud is lent appropriate amounts of sentimental whimsy, and grandiose melodrama by Sideways/Dexter/Up in the Air composer Rolfe Kent. The story, which revolves around a young man grieving the death of his younger sibling, begs for a heavy dose of autumnal melancholy and late summer nostalgia, both of which Kent applies here with great skill.
