Critic Reviews for Hold Fast

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

An often-poignant, smartly scripted journey, ably carried on the slim shoulders of a pair of young newcomers who appear poised for bigger things.

Apr 21, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

A workmanlike movie adaptation of Kevin Major's well-known Canadian young adult novel - a book compared by some critics to The Catcher in the Rye.

Apr 18, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The classic coming-of-age story lives or dies on the strength of its on-screen protagonist. Thankfully, Hold Fast features a powerful performance by 14-year-old Avery Ash.

Apr 17, 2014 | Rating: 3/4

Young Avery Ash, however, is a strong presence who grows on you, and aside from one sequence, the skinning of a rabbit, the movie provides a smooth and untroubled transition to reconciliation. And Newfoundland never looked better.
