Critic Reviews for Common Ground

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

As well meaning, nobly intended, and skillfully played as it is (Asner is terrific, and so are the turkey-baster jokes), what Common Ground isn't is Angels in America.

February 5, 2018 | Full Review…

At its best ''Common Ground... manages to mitigate the conventions by focusing on individuals caught between their perplexities and society's injunctions.

November 29, 2017 | Full Review…

The film has a strong political statement with an impassioned look at the ups and downs of the gay rights movement throughout recent U.S. history.
