“This movie is spellbinding storytelling. It begins with such a simple premise and creates such a genuinely intriguing situation that we’re not just entertained, we’re drawn into the argument.”
-Roger Ebert

“What John Lone does with Charlie is one of the decade’s greatest performances. A tragic, deeply personal work that could easily have been parody but is instead genuinely compelling.”
-That Moment In
