It was a fine movie. The cast was phenomenal and the movie did a good job of developing the characters. It felt a little slow especially the last third of the movie.

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

Horrible plot. Jumped time distance without explanation, no character development. Not sure what I just watched, but would rather watch paint dry... at least there is a beginning middle and end.

It was funny and I didn’t mind the erratic pace but the ending ruined it for me. I will not have a pity party for a kid who actively committed crimes and built a drug network and had to serve serious time once caught when there are TONS of real life stories of INNOCENT PEOPLE who did just as much time for crimes they did not commit.

Metacritic

80
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
Screen Daily

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
Stephen Farber
The Hollywood Reporter
75
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.
