      Jim P You might think that a week on a British caravan park sounds boring? But actually, sometimes, it can be great fun. Just like this movie! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/24 Full Review Micah B A wonderful little gem of a movie. I saw it had good reviews so thought I would try it out. Bought it on Prime Video for $4.99 and wasn't disappointed. Quirky, funny, and heartfelt. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Teo Bugbee New York Times If “Sweetheart” shows its share of evergreen teenage turmoil, the writer and director Marley Morrison also cannily observes details that feel specific to young people today. Feb 9, 2023 Full Review Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News Sweetheart is a funny, achingly real slice of familial drama that speaks with the ease and authority of someone who perhaps experienced a summer much like the one presented on screen. Rated: 3/4 Feb 8, 2023 Full Review Donald Clarke Irish Times Morrison's enchanting comedy makes something convincingly British of a form that the American indie cadre has exploited to near exhaustion. Rated: 4/5 Oct 8, 2021 Full Review Tina Kakadelis Beyond the Cinerama Dome Sweetheart is like summertime. It’s easy to love and fleeting, yet somehow eternal. Even though the film takes place in the present day, it has a timeless quality to it. Jul 25, 2023 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Sweetheart is an indie gem with an ensemble cast that is flawless. Rated: 3.0/4.0 Feb 18, 2023 Full Review Abbie Bernstein Assignment X A leisurely but enjoyable English coming-of-age dramedy. Rated: B Feb 13, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
