  • "Rosenwald" offers a compelling story of a man who obviously believed that giving is living.

  • The film is right in line with Kempner's other works...but as long as she keeps excavating these illuminating treasures of the Jewish-American past, that she's not doing anything radically new fades in importance.

    September 17, 2015 | Rating: 4/5
  • Inspiring as the story of Julius Rosenwald is, there's little in the film that illuminates what kind of man this heroic philanthropist was.

    September 10, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Most viewers will likely have little-to-no familiarity with the events recounted in this documentary, and are guaranteed to leave the theater feeling enlightened and perhaps more than a touch gobsmacked.

    September 4, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Kempner has also interviewed people whose lives were shaped by Rosenwald's charity, and their cultural reminiscences give a strong feeling for what he was all about.
