Eliecer Gaspar’s review published on Letterboxd:
In Running on Empty, it is possible to perceive (if you want to) the appearance of the plight of DREAMers in America with the character of Danny. Sure, it is an allegory within an allegory, and even a facile one, but like undocumented immigrants, the Pope family are never certain of their center in life. And you have to have a center in life. The need for roots.
