Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's a pop confection with a rough, honest texture, real but not raw and suffused with an infectious sweetness that lingers after the final shot. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Aug 18, 2016

Fresh: Morris From America isn't a coming-of-age comedy of the kind that John Hughes once specialized in. It wears its heart much too openly on its sleeve for that. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Aug 18, 2016

Fresh: Curtis understands his son's need to test boundaries as much as his own responsibility to protect him. Robinson makes this single dad's loneliness plain. Morris isn't the only one on the cusp. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Aug 18, 2016

Fresh: What's remarkable about the film is that it sets up what could have been a bunch of pat, dumb culture-clash jokes about a black New York kid in Europe, yet never takes the easy way out. Instead, it explores and resolutely preserves its hero's humanity. – Andrew Lapin, NPR, Aug 18, 2016

very well done!!

i loved it. thought it was very well done. And unlike other reviewers, I understood the point of bringing stereotypes into it or at least I think I did. That's how humans tend to process and perceive one another with no interest in looking deeper and be more discerning about people they meet who are different. And you saw how ridiculous those people were int he movie. The girl understood what was wrong with "small" thinking in general, hence why she left her hometown. And you saw the kid struggling in a very different culture that is so outside of his culture. Teenagers can be so cruel when a new kid comes top town regardless of cultural differences. This is a mulitilayered story. Anyone who has had to adjust to being in a differnt country, speaking a different language fighting stereoptypes that all countries have of one another will relate on some level. Hell you don't have to move to another country, you can experience that right here in america. I did coming from a french speaking part of the United States and being a person of color who did not speak very good english and was far more comfortable in my own culture and language. I had to assimilate and it was a challenge. Two thumbs up to this movie!


I wasn't really "feeling it." So, I turned it off after about 40 minutes.


Was looking forward to this one. But the trailer is completely different to the film. I don't know how Germany would have funded this film seeing it just deals in stereotypes
