Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The material aspires to powerful terseness, but its seemingly conscientious refusal to ramp up too much drama ultimately renders it thinly anecdotal. – Glenn Kenny, New York Times, Dec 31, 2015

Fresh: Franco gives one of his most subtle performances yet as a recovering-alcoholic father, and the three young newcomers' performances are honest and affecting. – Devan Coggan, Entertainment Weekly, Jan 7, 2016

Fresh: A low-key drama whose modesty is its own reward. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Oct 27, 2015

Fresh: The movie succeeds on its own quiet terms, binding the three parts together with assurance and tonal consistency to cast a lingering spell. – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter, Jan 7, 2016

Growing up in a different time.

I think this movie nailed it on the head of what it was like to grow up between 84-99 good movie check it out

no, just no

What a pointless meangless film. Don't waste one dime of your money on this meandering, uncomprehensible mess. It makes absolutely no sense at all. What in the world was Franco thinking?! Zero Zero stars. ugh.

Worth a watch

Enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Give it a try. Above average. 🌻
