Reviews

  • "Poetic and bittersweet, C'MON C'MON is a special film, one that asks us to recognize the mistakes we make, the people we wound, the feelings we hurt, and to maybe give ourselves a break in the process and hold on for what better future tomorrow may bring."
    - The Playlist
  • "One of the most deeply reflective American filmmakers working today, Mills is a storyteller with a baring, raw sense of honesty, unafraid of abruptly burst emotions."
    - RogerEbert.com
  • "The character complexities grow out of Mills’ divinely extraordinary writing."
    - TheWrap
