    If freshman film students were assigned to make a movie on race relations, this contrived attempt is probably what they'd come up with. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    What seemed sharp and pointed onstage comes across pedantically in the film, which treats its subject with a clumsy heavy-handedness. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Despite all the hyperventilating, the movie fails to consider what these crimes mean when, say, the residents of the White House happen to be black. The filmmakers recognize that identity politics are often a trap door. But it's one they're helpless to save themselves from falling through. show more

    This movie feels like an afterschool special or a film made to show to ninth grade civics classes. The acting is terrible, the dialog is stilted. I can\'t believe Sarah Jessica made this five years ago. I thought it must have b een made early in her career.
