HitFix's Grade: A
Will it becoming to a theater near you? Yes, Fox Searchlight picked it up. Expect a late Spring or Summer release.
Lowdown: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's coming of age genre breaker evoked the sort of reaction and standing ovations that films like "Precious" ("Push" at the time) and "Little Miss Sunshine" earned. That prompted a backlash from all the critics who didn't get to see it in the first screening and by the time you read this the backlash to the backlash will have occurred. So, yes, the fact its drawn so much attention might be a clue to just how fantastic it really is.
