Critic Reviews for Us Kids
Understanding that both surviving a shooting and sudden fame take a psychological toll, the film is a compassionate portrait eager to let its subjects speak for themselves.
Snyder casts her net too wide to paint a meaningful portrait of the kids, and follows them too closely to provide much lasting insight into the context of their campaign. And yet, the spirit of their mission shines through.
Offers a potent testimony to the impact of citizen protest - even, or perhaps particularly, when those citizens include youths who themselves just survived a school shooting.
A broad and sweeping look at the movement, what the film lacks in focus it makes up for in passion.
With extended access to the young activists not only on stage but in their homes and among their friends, Us Kids allows us to see them through one another's eyes - as "normal-ass kids" bravely dealing with the weight of their traumas.
