Critic Reviews for Emanuel

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (6)

"Emanuel" achieves a rich solemnity in honoring lives ripped away too soon and often quickly forgotten by a public all too often redirected by the news cycle toward another mass shooting.

A deeply religious film.

October 11, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It is a tribute to those who lost loved ones, but it's also a movie with a message, one that emphasizes some survivors and family members' willingness to forgive Roof just mere days after he walked into their church.

October 10, 2019 | Full Review…

The movie is primarily an act of bearing witness that does not ask to be judged on conventional filmmaking terms.

October 10, 2019 | Full Review…

"Emanuel" demonstrates forgiveness is hard work that requires a divine-level of fortitude. Especially when it comes at direct odds with the ones you hold dear.

June 17, 2019 | Full Review…

A loving and slightly awestruck elegy.
