Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"When it works, the film serves as a modest reminder that the challenges of autism may sometimes be no more daunting or fearsome than those that face anyone in search of an independent life."
‑ Daniel M. Gold, New York Times
"The first comedy gem of 2013."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, honeycuttshollywood.com
""The Story of Luke" is not a saga of epic proportions, but with a huge assist from Pucci's layered performance, takes a premise that could easily be movie-of-the-week sappy and finds a humanizing lightness."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"The outsized nature of their insensitivities is meant to reinforce the pain and humiliation from Luke's perspective, but it makes for a movie with an uneven tone."
‑ Matthew Odam, Austin American-Statesman
"A feel-good story about an autistic man's quest for independence, The Story of Luke is a charming little film in need of a bit more grit."
‑ Chuck Wilson, Village Voice
