All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

A solid, worthwhile documentary. If the film is workmanlike at times, it is also elegantly cleareyed.

A compassionate and psychologically revealing doc.

May 14, 2014 | Full Review…

Carolyn Jones's portrait of five medical caregivers walks us through day-in, day-out sacrifices without ever coming off as sentimental or aggrandizing.

May 6, 2014 | Full Review…

Moving and humanizing. It will forever change the way you look at nurses.

May 15, 2014 | Rating: 8.9/10 | Full Review…

An initially impactful mission statement about a few of the nation's millions of dedicated nurses, Carolyn Jones's well-meaning dossier of a documentary remains frustratingly on the surface.

May 15, 2014 | Full Review…

The film's connections between scenes -- within single storylines and also across the experiences of the various nurses -- construct an emotional and moral throughline, beyond particular place or crisis.
