Slant Magazine
The ear for language is paired with an eye for the landscape, and the film finds beauty even in such a seemingly dreary, economically depressed community. Full Review
Damon Wise
A terrific human drama about two boys about to be consigned to the scrapheap, with standout performances from its young leads. Full Review
Dave Calhoun
Time Out London
It’s not a pretty story, but its warmth lies in its fondness – love, even – for the two boys at its heart. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Both leading actors are teenagers who’ve never acted before — and they are both phenomenal. Full Review
Eric Hynes
Time Out New York
Mike Eley’s gorgeously saturated cinematography helps elevate the boys’ struggle into the realm of the heroic, but it’s the two young stars — one a whirlwind and the other a quiet protector — who make this only-slightly tall tale into something towering. Full Review
