Critic Reviews for 1985
All the performances are very good (though one might ask why no one has a regional accent), with stage-trained Smith providing a center of quiet intensity.
This is a realistic, discreet, yet exploratory film that earns its tears honestly and scrupulously.
Anchored by a deeply felt central performance from Cory Michael Smith, the modest but affecting film should find a receptive niche with LGBT audiences.
1985 may moralize a bit, but the film is quite moving. Smith gives a strong, subtle performance, and Madsen is heartbreaking as his mom. Bring Kleenex.
