"...a well-constructed, well-acted, solidly told tale."--Richard Roeper
"A painful reminder of how young black people still face overwhelming disadvantages."--Washington Post
"Hodge's performance is what keeps the film on track. He is powerful in scenes of anger, but he may be even better in purely silent moments where his unspoken reactions are eloquent."--Hollywood Reporter
