The Lesser Blessed Reviews

The emotions present in Anita Doron's film still feel fresh and universal, even if some of the dialogue is clunky.

Part of the long march of misunderstood movie adolescents that leads from the frozen Canadian North straight down to James Dean's Los Angeles in Rebel Without a Cause.

It's an undeniably noble effort from all involved, but the dreary denouement makes viewer feel lesser than blessed.

A decently acted coming-of-age drama that scores points for its setting -- a Canadian Indian reservation high school.

Despite [the movie's] issues, Doron has no trouble capturing the haunting grace of place and people and the harsh realities faced by "The Lesser Blessed."

[Doron] has assembled a uniformly solid cast, starting with an impressive debut by Evans, whose brown eyes are both soulful and watchful. It's a performance that commands our attention and empathy.
