    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Peake provides the solid center for a movie that would otherwise melt into indie formula. The quirky supporting characters, slow pacing and predictable plotting intermittently threaten to overwhelm such a modest story. But then Ted secretly turns his camera back toward Vanetia and, like him, we’re smitten again. show more

    Steph Green's first feature has more going for it than a solid dramatic turn by Will Forte. show more

    Focusing on this tumultuous period of adjustment, Run & Jump is uneven but admirably authentic in its observation of a family trying to retain something of their past lives while confronting an uncertain future. show more

    As much as I liked it, I have to admit Run & Jump is a work of no action — of love unrequited, feelings unexpressed and goals never reached. Sitting through it requires great patience. I don’t think this is an Ireland that would interest John Ford. show more

    This all sounds painfully glum and ultimately mawkish. But—like the active verbs that constitute its title — Run & Jump is surprisingly alive, full of jolts and unexpected bursts of humor and earned emotion. show more

    Forte and Peake excel in a notable debut from Green that marks her out as a director to watch. show more

    Mike D'Angelo The Dissolve

    Whether it’s possible to go on loving somebody who’s no longer himself is a momentous question that this movie largely ducks, ultimately providing an answer that seems imposed from without rather than arrived at organically. show more

    Despite the affecting drama and performances, Run and Jump just never feels more that perfunctory in this regards. show more
