Max Simkin repairs shoes in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations.

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    The Hollywood Reporter John DeFore

    In a movie built on the idea of walking in someone else's shoes, shouldn't learning to see others as more than stereotypes be fairly central to the plot's development?

    The Playlist Kevin Jagernauth

    While the idea is original, it's also ridiculous, and the story is not close to clever enough to put it into any kind of context that is compelling, interesting or believable.

    Variety Andrew Barker

    The result is a slow-motion zeppelin crash that starts as a dull-edged fable, and then spirals further and further out of control without ever growing more exciting or interesting.
