All Critics (45) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (44) | Rotten (1)

  • 'Jump" reveals the reality of life for those on the autism spectrum and debunks a lot preconceptions. What a lovely film.

    January 16, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • By opting for a measured and more humble approach, "The Reason I Jump" solidifies as less of an instructive solution than an empathetic work of encouragement.

    January 12, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The Reason I Jump will be revelatory for viewers who know little about the subject, and affirmative for caregivers and parents of children on the autism spectrum.

    January 12, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • While it's tricky for a neurotypical person (such as myself) to know how well it succeeds - as Mitchell says, "neurotypicals are rubbish at understanding anything that is not neurotypical" - I do feel like it reaches its aims.

    January 12, 2021 | Full Review…
  • It's a blatantly didactic film, yet its focus on advocacy feels justified given the misconceptions that continue to dominate society's understanding of the autism community.

    January 11, 2021 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • It's a leap of faith that is deeply rewarding.

    January 11, 2021 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
