Critic Reviews for The Samuel Project

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Like a history lesson delivered by an excited and affable - if inexperienced - teacher, "The Samuel Project" means well and will likely move audiences, despite its own undermining efforts.

October 4, 2018 | Full Review…

It could use more of grandpa's drama and less teen dramedy, but it's heartwarming.
