Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Although there is real pain and suffering in It All Starts Today, it is too impassioned, too brisk and too embracing of life and human foibles to be depressing.

  • 90

    Variety Derek Elley

    A warm, often invigorating and ultimately moving ode to community values.

  • 80

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    Strikes a difficult and necessary moral balance, refusing to succumb to hopelessness but also refusing to rule it out.
