Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 11/23/2010
"[I]ntellectually ambitious...all the more notable for setting well-drawn fictional characters in a fraught, real moment in civil rights history." -- Grade: B+
A.V. Club - 12/02/2010
"[I]t's clear Hamilton wants to reach beyond the arthouse to people who've experienced stories like hers first hand." -- Grade: B
New York Times - 12/03/2010
"Ms. Hamilton tells a modest, complex story with admirable clarity and nuance. That her film is so quiet, so evidently invested in contemplation rather than confrontation, gives it power as well as insight."
Movieline - 11/30/2010
"Washington is well cast as the clipped, deflective den mother..."
Wall Street Journal - 12/03/2010
"This film, which was written and directed by Tanya Hamilton, merits admiration as an ambitious debut feature..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 12/08/2010
3 stars out of 4 -- "The film leads to no showy conclusion, no spectacular climax. It is about movement possible within the soul even in difficult times."
Los Angeles Times - 12/10/2010
"It's a small independent film that believes you can mix the personal and the political to potent effect....NIGHT CATCHES US manages to be both pertinent and dramatically persuasive."
Box Office - 12/03/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his intelligent, emotional drama should resonate strongly with fans of character-driven stories and those interested in tales of American political struggle."
