  1. 80
    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.
  3. Reviewed by: Ronnie Scheib
    50
    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.
  6. 20
    For all the potential of this coming-of-age/political-awakening tale, Choose Connor undoes itself with an egregiously sordid turn.
