  • Summary: Fifteen-year-old Owen Norris is at the top of his graduating middle-school class, has no friends and spends almost all of his time studying. But his mundane suburban life is changed forever when he meets Congressman Lawrence Connor and his young nephew Caleb. As Caleb and Owen become close friends, Connor offers Owen the position of “youth campaign spokesman” for the upcoming Senate primaries. Owen’s fun summer job takes a dark turn as he uncovers the frightening truth about the deranged secret world of politics in which he has become entangled. (Strand Releasing) Collapse

    Excellent directing coupled with a smart script and solid acting make Choose Connor a movie worth your time.
  2. What makes Choose Connor so special and unsettling is the consistent adroitness and perfect timing with which Eberl makes his revelations.

    Once Choose Connor ventures into the larger political arena, it begins to work against itself.
  4. What makes the journey compelling is the relaxed chemistry between the young actors and an insistently apprehensive tone that pervades even the most prosaic exchanges.
  5. 38
    This overlong, obvious and indifferently acted melodrama was written and directed by Luke Eberl, a former child actor, before he turned 21.

    For all the potential of this coming-of-age/political-awakening tale, Choose Connor undoes itself with an egregiously sordid turn.
