“A film that favors feeling over structure. If he’s struggling to find a rhythm, especially in the beginning, there’s no doubt he’s sending you on a sweet high. Sheri Linden: The Hollywood Reporter

“Despite the seriousness of this all-American coming-of-age story, it’s hard to escape the feeling that ‘The Tender Bar’ sits somewhere between a Nicholas Sparks adaptation and a mediocre Saturday Night Live skit. ” Rafaela Sales Ross: The Reading List

“A pleasantly anecdotal walk in the past (…) But the fact is that not much is happening. Nicholas Barber: IndieWire
