What I liked

Schiller is a star. Garver’s got charisma for days.

What I didn't like

I’d like to see this fleshed out into a full-length play—or a film. give me more Schiller. let me see more of the family at the center. some fallout after that ending. basically I want more. well done all.

My overall impression

A funny and sad look at a moment in American history in the vein of dramas like “Bobby” or “Parkland”, with a steady climb towards its climax. Schwartz builds his tension steadily and purposefully. Ritchey’s staging and direction is succinct and keeps things to the point—so when the climax hits you, it feels like a brick.
