Movie Info

Us Kids is an insightful, rousing coming-of-age story of youth leaders determined to fight for justice at a critical time in U.S. history. Sparked by the plague of gun violence ravaging their schools, Us Kids chronicles the March For Our Lives movement over several years. The documentary follows Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Cameron Kasky, Samantha Fuentes, gun violence survivors, and teenage activists as they pull together the largest youth protest in American history. Their movement went global with rallies on six continents and in over 700 cities in every state across the nation, expanding to address racial injustice, a growing public health crisis, and shocking a political system into change. The March For Our Lives movement was instrumental in the record youth voter turnout in 2018 and 2020.

Critic Reviews for Us Kids

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (5)

  • The sad truth is that Us Kids feels a bit too much like the thing the students hoped to avoid: a celebration of a moment in time, not the start of a revolution.

    June 10, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • For its merits as a dynamic nonfiction piece incisively dealing with a pivotal issue from heartbreakingly human angle, "Us Kids" is indispensable viewing for anyone who genuinely cares about the future of this country beyond "thoughts and prayers."

  • It asks very difficult questions about what it means to grow up in a country where gun violence is so common.

  • A needed reminder that issues don't go away just because something else is getting today's headlines.

  • Like the limited legislative change that has occurred due to the underappreciated efforts of these valiant activists, I wish Snyder's Us Kids resulted in more.

    October 30, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "Us Kids" skillfully handles a sensitive subject and prudently connects the Parkland students' stories to those of Black students whose experiences with gun violence rarely garner similar national attention.

  • The most captivating moments of the film are those far from the headlines and soundbites.

    June 2, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is a fascinating study of activism that comes from a tragic event where the participants are struggling with whopping cases of survivor's guilt, trauma, PTSD, and imposter syndrome.
