      Jude Dry indieWire "Edith+Eddie" boasts executive producers Steve James and Cher, which will no doubt garner some interest, but this basic treatment plays like an expanded news item. Rated: C+ Feb 23, 2018 Full Review Jordan M. Smith Nonfics Edith+Eddie examines the psychic repercussions of familial estrangement to devastating effect. Dec 5, 2018 Full Review Glenn Dunks Junkee I just wish director Laura Checkoway had confronted any of the issues that her documentary raises. Jun 20, 2018 Full Review MaryAnn Johanson Flick Filosopher Heartbreaking and enraging. Checkoway's approach is intimate, giving space for emotions such as rage and grief and loneliness to play out in a way that brings us inside the pain. Rated: 4.5/5 Mar 5, 2018 Full Review Dan Lybarger Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Edith + Eddie is tricky to get through, but it's as engrossing as it is heartbreaking. Rated: 4/5 Feb 23, 2018 Full Review Arlin Golden Film Inquiry Edith+Eddie is powerful portrait of the letter of the law winning out over common sense and the prioritization of capital over people in the US.
