Just a heart wrenching tale of a kid that got used by a corrupt justice system and disregarded and hid away for thirty plus years. Sheds light on corruption in our justice system and just hurts to know the injustice done to this once bright eyed kid

Metacritic

Sep 8, 2018

The new film from ’71 director Yann Demange is best when it pauses to explore the father-and-son drama at the heart of this tale, as well as coldly examining America’s ruinous drug policy.

Tim Grierson

Sep 8, 2018

Despite impressive performances by Matthew McConaughey and newcomer Richie Merritt, the film fails to engage or enlighten.

Metacritic review by Stephen Farber

Sep 8, 2018

Despite its structural hiccups, Demange’s film still manages to highlight the humanity of a family and community that fights to survive their no-win circumstances and aspire to pass on something hopeful to their descendants.
