Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A film of overwhelming emotional power."
‑ David Cornelius, DVDTalk.com
"Lazy filmmaking that fails to engage anyone who doesn't have a personal connection to the story. It's so well-meaning that it ultimately means nothing much at all."
‑ Brian Holcomb, Slant Magazine
"This is a film about respect and dignity, both in death and in life. And we hope that we may be treated with the same level of careful attention."
‑ Jason McKiernan, Filmcritic.com
"A tedious 85 minutes of Kevin Bacon saluting."
‑ Joshua Tyler, CinemaBlend.com
"It dramatizes a true story in a way that will break your heart without ever feeling manipulative or gratuitous."
‑ Marshall Fine, Hollywood & Fine
"Does this really tell us much that isn't patently obvious to anybody with a brain and a heart?"
‑ Ray Greene, Boxoffice Magazine
