      Roxana Hadadi Punch Drunk Critics The Park Bench has some moments of genuine emotion, and the falling-in-love-over-literature idea is a solid one. But it never attempts to be more than a product of its genre, and in that way, The Park Bench is too limited for its own good. Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 9, 2017 Full Review Katie Walsh Los Angeles Times A sweet tale with a smart storytelling device and charming performers, but not much more beyond the cute. Aug 20, 2015 Full Review Scott Tobias Variety Despite winning performances, something about this wispy two-hander just doesn't sit right. Aug 20, 2015 Full Review Mae Abdulbaki Movies with Mae LeSchander shows a lot of strength in her debut feature, but because of the unchanging setting, The Park Bench could have perhaps been better if it had been situated on a stage rather than onscreen. Rated: 2.5/5 May 2, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Beautiful. Want to find the soundtrack desperately. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Lots of good, interesting dialogue. A sweet little movie to watch to put a smile on your face! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member I loved it. The acting was sensational. The story revealed the content of the tutoring, literature that Emily could teach well and that Mateo lived as truth. Emily was Prufrock -- until she wasn't. Walter Perez and Nicole Hayden were a great match with wonderful on-screen chemistry. Skillful plot development. I've watched it several times. The stories with the story enriched the characters and strengthened their growing connection. Thank you for this labor of love! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie surprised me with its winning performances and charm. As it moved along I was so engaged with the characters and felt like I was truly peeking in on a slice of life. They seemed so real that I became very invested in their relationship. I also loved the animation. I hope people will find this movie because it's a real gem. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member What a gem of a movie! It may seem simple but it felt very real. I loved how the relationship evolved. And the stories they tell were really engaging. Very sweet! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Device driven love story. Would be a good play. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
