Daniel Bigler’s review:
Brooklyn Castle truly is a gem of a film — and it continues to grow on me every time I watch it. For this second time around, I was relieved to find while watching it that I just didn't have that looming worry about whether I would "like the film enough," and whether it would live up to my (insanely high) expectations. Nope, this time around, it honestly felt like I was just hanging around with a bunch of really cool middle school kids — which I guess I do regularly enough in my day job already, but c'mon, these kids are good at chess! Chess, I say!
