Review Revue

A lot of people like Dear White People

Chicago Tribune: “This is the best film about college life in a long time, satiric or straight, comedy or drama.”

RedEye : “The funny, challenging Dear White People goes right for the thoughtfully uncomfortable and stays there.”

New York Times: “It is is as smart and fearless a debut as I have seen from an American filmmaker in quite some time: knowing but not snarky, self-aware but not solipsistic, open to influence and confident in its own originality."
