"ONE OF THE YEAR’S TEN BEST. Watching it again, I loved it even more. Rare is the film that refuses to judge its flawed characters. Rare is the film that has so much heart. From soundtrack to setting, every detail feels real, as if the Cuestas have known these characters all their lives."

-Elizabeth Weitzman, NY Daily News

"**** Roadie soars. A fresh alternative to typical indie-cinema wallowing."

-Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out NY

"Ron Eldard is top-notch. Soulfully directed by Michael Cuesta, ‘Roadie’ is a perfectly attuned character study of this rock relic."

-Kyle Smith, NY Post

"Gritty, honest and uncategorizable--a showcase for the outsized acting talents of Ron Eldard, Bobby Cannavale and Jill Hennessy. Eldard gives a valiant performance and Hennessy, who seems to get better with each film, seems the perfect embodiment of the beauty who never left the neighborhood, and should have.” "

-John Anderson, Variety

"ROADIE IS WORTH THE TRIP thanks to knockout turns by Ron Eldard and Bobby Cannevale, two of our finest actors at work. Eldard is magnetic and heartbreaking."

-Erica Abeel, Huffington Post

"QUIETLY POWERFUL. Director Michael Cuesta beautifully evokes Forest Hills (Queens), balancing neighborhood bluster with nostalgia and tough love."

-Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

"Cuesta captures the outer-outer-boroughness of New York City like nobody else."

-Andrew O’Hehir, Salon
