    Press

    A charismatic star in McCaul Lombardi – previously seen in American Honey and Patti Cake$ -brings some iconic appeal.

    Screen Daily

    Under Porterfield’s passionate gaze (…) Sollers Point builds toward a quickening emotional connection.

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Precise and brilliant.

    Fotogramas

    McCaul Lombardi brings an intensity to Keith, playing him as a blue-eyed boy gone bad.

    Filmmaker Magazine

    A terrific Jim Belushi.

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Porterfield’s achievement (…) is to hang back from expected narrative payoffs, while offering the appeal of a character study rooted in a specific American working-class milieu.

    I like characters in transitional periods - those are the characters I want to write about. I don't like characters who always know what to do - I like characters who are trying to decide how they feel.
