Top Critic

Its thematic scope stays rather small, and the final third of the movie seems muted and flat.

Washington Post
Top Critic

A sweet little fable, a bit shy on substance but quite charming in the telling.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

An unapologetically small but wholly original movie, warm-hearted but not precious, and possessed of a gently wacky sensibility.

One of the pleasures of Manny & Lo is the way that it reveals its characters in sudden, unexpected, defining acts.

An honest, original independent film with developed characters. Sequenced perfectly. Saw it first in 96. Many times since. SJ's talent was quite apparent!

Scarlett Johansson REALLY way back in the day. Interesting very young delinquents kidnap adult story.
