Film is playing at everyone's favorite indie film theater in NYC, Pioneer.
A few quotes:
"There's not a single wrong note in “"Liberty Kid,"...
Tender, wise and deceptively low-key... Quietly accumulates emotional power...
Not until the graceful, perfectly judged conclusion do we realize how much we care."
NEW YORK TIMES
"Chaiken's subtle narrative touch, along with the exceptionally strong performances of
leads Al Thompson and Kareem Savinon, gives this one a rare emotional pull."
NEW YORK MAGAZINE
"the least explicit yet most affecting film yet to depict New York
in the weeks and months after the towers fell."
NEW YORK SUN
"An uncommonly acute, deftly played drama of the New York working class"
Nathan Lee, VILLAGE VOICE
"Epic and resonant… to her eternal credit, Chaiken keeps her movie grounded in her characters, allowing Thompson and Savinon's true-to-life performances to carry us through…"
Bilge Ebiri, NERVE
"a powerful drama... Chaiken works with a delicate touch... potent, thoroughly believable... deeply poignant"
Stephen Farber, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
