The movie succeeds on its own quiet terms, binding the three parts together with assurance and tonal consistency to cast a lingering spell.

David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter, 2016-01-07

 

Franco gives one of his most subtle performances yet as a recovering-alcoholic father, and the three young newcomers' performances are honest and affecting.

Devan Coggan, Entertainment Weekly, 2016-01-07

 

A sobering, evocative drama.

Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News, 2016-01-07

 

Yosemite mines Franco's fiction for its most vital quality: his unsentimental depiction of youthful insecurity, this time among fifth-graders.

Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, 2015-12-29

 

A low-key drama whose modesty is its own reward.

Dennis Harvey, Variety, 2015-10-27

 

Although evocative and nicely observed, the coming-of-age drama "Yosemite" ultimately proves too low-key and elliptical to make much of an impression. "Stand by Me" it ain't.

Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, 2016-01-21

 

The material aspires to powerful terseness, but its seemingly conscientious refusal to ramp up too much drama ultimately renders it thinly anecdotal.

Glenn Kenny, New York Times, 2015-12-31
