Reviews

"Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson, has made her first movie as a screenwriter and producer a charming drama about the love of movies and youthful passion." — Monica Castillo, The New York Times
"One gets the sense that if Il Mago (Fellini) still lived, he would approve, not only of Lexton’s flattering homage but also his understanding of the magic of cinema." — Andy Crump, Paste Magazine
