Critic Reviews of "Morris from America"Minneapolis Star TribuneSeptember 08, 2016
While countless coming-of-age indies have followed the standard mold of following a new teen boy's first awkward steps ahead, writer/director Chad Hartigan's compassionate mix of charm, heartache and hip-hop ramps up this version handsomely.Boston GlobeSeptember 08, 2016
While "Morris From America" trundles along familiar tracks, Hartigan's eye for detail and individuality yields enough dividends to keep the film moving tartly and congenially along.Detroit NewsSeptember 02, 2016
"Morris from America" feels thin at times. But at its best, its themes of growing up, culture gaps and the power of music take the specific and make them universal.Philadelphia InquirerAugust 26, 2016
The truehearted insights in Chad Hartigan's Sundance award-winner - about adolescence, about alienation, about parenting, about race - make it a must-see.Chicago Sun-TimesAugust 25, 2016
Morris [is] played by marvelous newcomer Markees Christmas in a breakout performance.Chicago ReaderAugust 25, 2016
Morris ranks as one of the most indelible, endearing adolescents to hit the screen in a long time, a tough-minded philosopher gamely suffering the vicissitudes of loneliness and unrequited love.Movie NationSeptember 23, 2016
Slight, but just sweet enough to come off.Sacramento News & ReviewSeptember 09, 2016
Morris from America isn't shy about rolling around in genre tropes - it manages to be a fish-out-of-water story, a coming-of-age story and a slice-of-life all at once - but it rarely comes across as false or forced.The Patriot LedgerSeptember 09, 2016
Yes, it's the old fish-out-of-water scenario, but Hartigan does so much with it that it actually seems fresh.The National (UAE)September 08, 2016
As a European, albeit one whose country is apparently leaving Europe, I found the cliched approach to 'otherness' a little annoying.Blu-ray.comSeptember 08, 2016
"Morris from America" is funny and unusual, and while it teases storytelling disaster as it unfolds, the production remains amusing and periodically genuine.One Guy's OpinionSeptember 02, 2016
Slight but engaging fish-out-of-water coming-of-age tale.
