REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..The Judge does feature a few well-drawn scenes that capture the truth about caring for an elderly parent -- it's hardly a pretty business, definitely not for the faint of heart..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
“..a synchronized duet for two terrific actors at the top of their craft that left me stunned..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..well-acted, with some occasional moments of clever dialogue, but the story is plodding, predictable and tension-free..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
