Corey Atad’s review:
An unexpected gem. I mean, sure I expected it to be good, but not this good! It also surprised me in that it wasn't actually an inspirational teacher drama. It has a few of those notes, but really it's about a teacher who simply can't be broadly inspirational. The film ends up being a meditation on grief and a beautiful one at that. It's also got a few really wonderful child performances, including one from a girl who recalls a young Drew Barrymore, both in looks and talent.
