A Lion in the House opens today in Boston at the Brattle and Denver at the Starz Film Center for limited runs.
The reviews are terrific:
Ty Burr, Boston Globe:
"**** A heart - render and a hankie-drencher, it's a film of quiet, almost incalculable power."
Chealsea Bain, Boston Herald:
"A- Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert’s A Lion in the House runs four hours, but feels like it will resonate for a lifetime."
Bob, Denerstein, Rocky Mountain News:
"A- Almost everything I'm going to say about the film may sound more like a discouragement than an inducement to attend. But I'm recommending the movie because it must be regarded as an extraordinary expression of will, endurance and fortitude. "
Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post:
"***1/2 Here's a stray thought stirred by A Lion in the House: Heroism is too often defined in relation to warfare. This amazing collection of characters reminds us that being heroic is a struggle to do the right thing in the face of an untenable situation."
And don't forget, Steven Bognar will be appearing with the film at the Makor this Sunday. Screening starts at 5. After that, the film will screen twice more on 6/11+12. Don't miss it.
