  • "Midnight Family" is both a compassionate portrait of a working-class family and a frightening ride through a broken healthcare system that risks the lives of both patients and providers like the Ochoa family.

  • What's indelible in this visceral chronicle is that more than profiting from human suffering, the Ochoas fill the gaps of economic inequality while doing good without reservation.

  • One of the great contemporary films about the look and feel of a big city after dark.

    Dec 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Periodically while watching "Midnight Family" you feel as if you can't look at the screen for another second. But you can't look away either.

    Dec 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • These moments of downtime provide a warm, comic energy to Midnight Family that renders the Ochoas naturally sympathetic subjects and illustrates why Lorentzen decided to film them in the first place.
