Everything $100,000,000 in studio money can't buy: heart, soul, simplicity, and fun.

Village Voice
Even as an apocalyptic plot-pushing rescue mission unfolds, slapstick police chases keep the level of diverting quirk high, and the husband-wife/father-daughter dynamics remain central. Full Review
Bill Goodykoontz
Arizona Republic
To call the film slight is an understatement, and its budget, particularly for a movie with genuine sci-fi elements, is miniscule. But it is so charming and sweet...and the songs are so winning that it is impossible not to fall for it. Full Review
Eric Kohn
Smart in spite of its irreverence, "Future Folk" is the weirdest, most enjoyable fusion of genres you'll see this year. Full Review
Justin Lowe
The Hollywood Reporter
Whimsically combining elements of sci-fi, drama and musical comedy, J. Anderson Mitchell and Jeremy Kipp Walker’s debut feature is a unique mashup that succeeds more by sheer originality than any singular reserve of talent. Full Review
Neil Genzlinger
The New York Times
It may not make much sense in a brief plot summary, but it makes perfect, daffy sense on the screen. Full Review
