San Francisco Chronicle
A charming, aimless film about the aimless. It plays like a nuanced MTV reality show (an oxymoron, perhaps, but you get the idea). Full Review

Slant Magazine
Jason Tippet and Elizabeth Mims refuse to use their subjects as test cases for any sort of larger thesis. Full Review
Farran Smith Nehme
New York Post
The film thwarts any pat expectations you might glean from the town's bad economy and these checkered backgrounds. The teenagers are refreshingly gentle and clean-living; they don't drink, they don't swear and they certainly aren't having sex. All three are religious, a fact that is neither emphasized nor underplayed. Full Review

Only the Young rarely coalesces into anything more meaningful than a casual collection of moments. Maybe that's the point. Full Review
Manohla Dargis
The New York Times
If Mr. Tippet and Ms. Mims weren't such accomplished visual stylists, you might even think that the teenagers shot the documentary themselves, which explains both its appeal and its limitations. Full Review
