  • ★★★★ review by Emily Barton on Letterboxd

    is it just me or does everyone watch the protagonists of films like "please protect my babies"

  • ★★★½ review by Haley Goetz on Letterboxd

    You know, I thought it was alright. It certainly lagged in a lot of places narrative-wise, but I did think that the languid storytelling certainly worked its magic at points. The ending especially did it for me.

  • ★★★½ review by amb on Letterboxd

    In its best moments, this has a remarkable energy. Really any time Naz & Maalik are on screen together, this surges. It's a startlingly authentic feeling depiction of a friendship that might be something more. It's just a shame that it all comes to a grinding halt every time a family member or FBI agent pops up on screen with some drama to interrupt them.

  • ★★★½ review by daisi on Letterboxd

    For real f tha police. I read that it's based on two individual real experience but honestly this is a film that a white person did not need to make

  • ★★★½ review by Angelsfeelings on Letterboxd

    I wish the movie concentrated exclusively on the two boys. Whenever the FBI agents got involved the movie lost some of its charm.
