Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Though too slight to be memorable, the gay romance "Front Cover" takes a gentle, thoughtful look at the intersection of ethnicity and sexuality. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Aug 4, 2016

Fresh: If there isn't much subtlety or surprise in Yeung's screenplay, his direction is graceful enough to make this a pleasant if unmemorable bittersweet love story. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Aug 5, 2016

Fresh: It's a root-worthy picture with its share of warm, amusing moments, an attractive pair of leads and a vivid use of Big Apple locales. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Aug 11, 2016

Rotten: The very few instances where stereotypes are challenged are forced and didactically delivered. – Diego Semerene, Slant Magazine, Aug 5, 2016

I liked everything about this movie.

Beautiful story

This was a great movie. Bittersweet lover story. The only thing that would've made it better was a happy ending with the couple. But, that's not life.
