2.5 out of 10 Missed Opportunity.
Alan from Dublin, 11 May 2010
This features an outstanding performance by Christian mcKay as Orson Welles, so much so that the rest of the film feels like a bit of a let down. I felt myself wishing that Welles would spend more time on screen and that the storyline of the young actor just wasn't interesting enough. This will interest an older audience, ones that remember Welles and his classic films.

4.5 out of 10 Great Film
Seamus from Monaghan, 28 Nov 2012
This isn't sophisticated or clever. It's not the greatest love story ever told. It's 90 minutes of entertainment. It's well acted. Even Zach Ephron who I was all ready to dislike is brilliant and the whole story engages you and the characters are believable, so much so that I thought it was a true story.

3 out of 10 Not to bad, could've been so much better though
Alana from Donegal, 22 Apr 2010
Overall not bad movie at all , just have to say that absolutely hated Orson Welles characher from very beginning, maybe this fact didn't allow me to enjoy the movie, it also means that Christian McKay did great job, he portrait Orson beautifully(in a way).

3.5 out of 10 Pleasant viewing
Gerard from Limerick, 13 Feb 2012
A bit slow to get a grip but a likeable movie with a very engaging Clare Danes. Based on a treu life story involving Orson Welles, it's beautifullly in period and has a script worth listening to.

What's it about....
ME AND ORSON WELLES is set in the exciting world of the New York Theatre. Teenage student Richard Samuels (Zac Efron) lucks his way into a minor role in the legendary 1937 Mercury Theatre production of Julius Caesar, directed by a youthful Orson Welles (strikingly portrayed by newcomer Christian McKay.) Over the course of a magical week, Richard makes his Broadway debut, finds romance with an ambitious older woman, and experiences the dark side of genius after daring to cross...
