Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Hamilton immerses itself in the summertime rhythms of one particular blue-collar Baltimore suburb, playing out in uninterrupted chunks of real time."
‑ Joshua Land, Village Voice
"Porterfield finds the rhythms of everyday life well enough, but he rarely grasps the key moments that make them art."
‑ Paul Schrodt, Slant Magazine
