"So well-written and acted you feel like you’re eavesdropping. A movie like this one wouldn’t work if the actors were anything less than inspired, and Lucas Near-Verbrugghe and Aaron Costa Ganis are both so good that by the end of the film they feel like new friends you’ve made. LAZY EYE is a small-scale movie, but there are far bigger dramas that don’t leave this kind of afterglow." -Owen Gleiberman, VARIETY
