Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An intelligent, moving film steeped in an authentic sense of time and place."
‑ Sura Wood, Hollywood Reporter
"A solid work of classical storytelling."
‑ Jeremy Mathews, Film Threat
"Offers an intelligent and affecting take on political radicalization in 1950s Johannesburg."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"...an engaging look at an important moment in history..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"...a harrowing, enlightening venture where 'We live fast, die young, and leave a good-looking corpse,' sadly isn't just a throwaway line uttered early in a bar scene. It's an epigraph."
‑ Brandon Judell, New York Theatre Wire
"Unfortunately relies on unoriginal plotting techniques to convey the story of an investigative journalist attempting to expose racial injustices in a society coming to grips with the newly introduced edicts of apartheid."
‑ Francesca Dinglasan, Boxoffice Magazine
