  • Well-intentioned but cloying.

    April 16, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Director Randall Wright keeps things simple. Nothing much happens, really, but the film's optimistic take on life is like an easygoing stroll through a verdant forest. It's invigorating.

    April 26, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Wright's film provides considerable insight into how various special-needs conditions might be better handled by society than they are presently.

    April 5, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The movie's Edenic vision prioritizes long footage of group meals and daily routines over talk of funding or governmental policy, which will suit viewers wanting to vicariously experience a community where acceptance is the overriding principle.

    March 23, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Regardless of it all, the characters are so uninhibited and candid they achieve, without effort, a naturalism that would be the envy of any method actor.

    March 23, 2018 | Full Review…
  • "Summer in the Forest" is an extraordinarily tender documentary that asks what it means to be human. Here, even the most gentle scenes raise mighty questions.
