Critic Reviews for Papi Chulo

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

It's the synergistic performances of Matt Bomer, playing raw and broken, and Alejandro Patino, conveying decency and nonjudgmental compassion behind his deadpan raised eyebrows, that makes the movie click.

A scrupulously low-key and unassumingly ingratiating dramedy...

Just like Sean, Papi Chulo's heart is clearly in the right place but, just like Sean, it has very little regard for Ernesto's feelings and needs.

Despite straightening into a character study of a rich, famous white guy dealing with loneliness and a fractured state of mind, Papi Chulo is involving largely because of Bomer's lived-in performance.

October 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Despite telling a story of heartbreak, there's never a doubt about the love Butler has for everyone and every place on screen and it can't help but be infectious, starting with the removal of a tree that allows for so much more to bloom in its place.

October 8, 2018 | Full Review…

This is a touching, humane story of grief, friendship, loss and kindness across language and cultural barriers.
