2.5 of 4

“..this is grim, bleak material that at times is monotonous, but its woe feels authentic..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..little more than a resume film for all involved, it certainly feels more Park City than Bushwick..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]
“..feels like a cup-half-full response to that bleak inner-city fable, with a stunningly beautiful fair-skinned black teen slowly awakening to the prospects of what's ahead if she doesn't find a way out of her neighborhood..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
3 of 5

“..a prosaic look at a hard life. Like Sweetness, the movie finds its way by instinct..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
