  • Bracingly unsentimental and transcendently moving at the same time.

  • It's a fascinating puzzle: a film that is simultaneously an indictment of the toxic legacy of cultural imperialism and a weepie that employs the familiar tropes of Hollywood, one of the biggest machines of cultural imperialism on the planet.

    Sep 6, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The "white saviour" approach is awkward at best. It opens with a trigger-warning, signaling lack of confidence in the material (and the audience, too).

    Aug 3, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The film hosts a plethora of well-constructed young characters with genuine ambition and an authenticity that breaks and warms the heart all at once.

    Jul 3, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A complete triumph from casting and location filming to its refusal to simplify the harshness of the life it explores.

    Jun 28, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • The fearless and inspiring The Grizzlies gives Canadian film the great sports drama that has long eluded it.
