Critic Reviews of "Lucas"Los Angeles TimesAugust 23, 2016
Lucas is as irresistible as its slight, brilliant, bespectacled 14-year-old hero (Corey Haim).Chicago TribuneAugust 23, 2016
Having carefully and sensitively drawn an interesting character and put him in an interesting place, the filmmakers start painting with their fingers and ultimately provide a very familiar picture.New York TimesMay 21, 2003
No, it's not a daringly original plot and yes, it is sentimental, but Mr. Seltzer handles his small story as gently as Lucas handles the baby locust he finds in the road.ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
It's a poignant and effective character study that manages not only to explore important teenage issues without condescending to the audience, but to offer an upbeat ending without descending into mawkishness.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
It would be tragic if this film would get lost in the shuffle of "teenage movies." This is a movie that is as pure and true to the adolescent experience as Truffaut's The 400 Blows.Sarasota Herald-TribuneJanuary 31, 2011
It's hard to think of another movie where so many young performers have so forcefully announced themselves to the world.Common Sense MediaJanuary 02, 2011
