  • 5 stars "For anyone who hasn't heard the American Boychoir, this is exactly how they sound. Here's hoping the film gets an underground following and because it is well worth seeing!"
  • 5 stars "Terrific movie, shame the release is too limited, anyone who loves music should make the effort see it."
