Critic Reviews for 1982
Enough cannot be said for how refreshing it is to see characters like these relate, interact, and grow with one another on screen.
Suitably low-key but sometimes under-realized, this drama is fueled by its working-class milieu and a heart-wrenching performance by Hill Harper.
The film feels coolly detached because the story and characters are underdeveloped.
Oliver never backs away from difficult subject matter (semi-autobiographical, at that) and it's positively gut-wrenching to watch.
So finely and honestly observed for much of its running time, the confidence doesn't seem to quite be there to let the film's most dramatic moments work on their own power without musical or editorial augmentation.
