  • Michael Peer's rating of the film Sidney Hall

    One of the very best films I saw at Sundance 2017. Sidney Hall is a triumphant feat of filmmaking, writing, and performance that bind together for a wholly unique and deeply moving experience. Logan Lerman is sensational - portraying Hall at 3 different ages: 18, 24, and 30. Although he is 24, he is most convincing at 30. The film IS Sidney Hall - structurally and visually. A perfect example of form matching content.
