Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    A potent mixture of sentiment and grit, and it showcases the talents of its young principals.

  • 70

    New Times (L.A.) David Ehrenstein

    The film belongs to Jordan Brower, whose every appearance breaks one's heart, and makes some otherwise familiar material come alive.

  • 20

    Mr. Showbiz Kevin Maynard

    Hard to watch -- not because of its unflinching realism, but rather for its mawkish reliance on every boy hooker flick from "Midnight Cowboy" to "Johns."
