Critic Reviews for Dreamcatcher

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (11)

Myers-Powell understands the psychology of human trafficking, and her advice is admirably sober, clear-eyed, and devoid of sentiment.

September 10, 2015 | Full Review…

Despite the harrowing stories that fill the film from start to finish, "Dreamcatcher" is not hopeless. How could it be hopeless when there are people like Myers-Powell in the world?

March 27, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

These stories are hard to hear, but Myers-Powell demonstrates that bearing witness and testifying are key to recovery and healing, as are unconditional love and a belief that no one is past redemption.

Director Kim Longinotto somehow inveigles her camera into the lives of prostitutes, abused teenagers and drug addicts on the streets of Chicago, and elicits confessions and revelations that leave you gasping.
