“Raising significant questions about the psychological effects of poverty on young children, this unsettlingly direct stab at atonement feels genuine."

- Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

“Technically, there isn't a scene, indeed a frame of this movie that feels less than expertly realized... The content of the exchanges is innately powerful, but the style adds another layer of intensity.”

- Matt Zoller Seitz, Roger Ebert


“A marvel of feeling... A triumph, as moving as it is courageous.”

- Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
