  • Not every directorial choice or camera movement works, but this indie drama shines in the silences.

  • The dialogue is best when it focuses on issues you can actually take seriously, but the couple's talk about dreams deferred is too knee-jerk to warrant sympathy.

  • Qasim Basir's melancholic mood piece, "A Boy. A Girl. A Dream.," certainly has its pretensions...But to get caught up in its impressive stylishness is to miss the larger point of finding strength through human connection.

    Sep 12, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film succeeds as more than an accomplished technical stunt, even if neither its political nor character dimensions feel quite fully realized.

  • The film is best as a showcase of [Good and Hardwick's] talents, but only when it gives them something to say.

  • A film that's pleasurable to engage with, even if the latter stretch doesn't come close to realizing some of the early promise.
