Critic Reviews for Akron

All Critics (7) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (3)

  • Overall it's a cute film that loses steam in the midsection, as it does veer a little too much into melodramatic territory that never quite figures out how to ground itself.

  • If you're starved for some queer film and have a few bucks to drop on a rental, this isn't a bad way to go.

  • Akron, the minimalistic yet affecting indie drama, is titled after the fifth largest city in Ohio, which is of course the setting of this poignant little film about family, young love and ghosts from the past.

    September 15, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Though talent is clearly evident, Akron's writing is unfortunately offset by the flow of its direction.

    April 4, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The best and worst thing about the movie is that you could probably change Benny and Christopher to a heterosexual couple and not have to change a single line of the screenplay.

    February 15, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Though with an unimaginative score, Akron effectively tells a story about two gay men who meet and fall in love in Midwestern America.
