This is a smart, effective coming-of-age tale about a boy figuring out that there are gray areas to life's moral choices.

Mark Dujsik, RogerEbert.com, 2016-03-18

 

Nelson ties perhaps too neat of a bow on the proceedings, but there's no denying the warmth and amiable spirit of "The Confirmation."

Tom Long, Detroit News, 2016-03-18

 

The pleasures are modest but rewarding in Bob Nelson's character study "The Confirmation."

Andy Webster, New York Times, 2016-03-18

 

The Confirmation is a powerful directorial debut from 59-year-old writer Bob Nelson, who received an Oscar nomination for his first screenplay, Nebraska.

Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2016-03-18

 

Feature films these days rarely come as gentle and equitable as "The Confirmation."

Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, 2016-03-17

 

One of the selling points of "The Confirmation" is how it steers clear of melodrama or tidy perfection in favor of a taste of life on the margins, where even living paycheck to paycheck would be a luxury.

Stephanie Merry, Washington Post, 2016-03-17

 

It's a film about a man who values a skill of careful, solid hand-crafting that's almost forgotten. That's what this low-key, character-driven family film is, too.

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2016-03-17

 

In the best moments, Nelson juxtaposes ... ephemeral, eternal doubt against the concrete realities of small-town American poverty and marginality.

Adam Nayman, AV Club, 2016-03-17

 

The Confirmation is a nice change of pace from most of the hateful violence we're getting these days-inescapably inconsequential but ultimately endearing.

Rex Reed, New York Observer, 2016-03-17

 

A low-key gem.

Soren Anderson, Seattle Times, 2016-03-17

 

The movie's not just good but moving, funny and true to the way people actually live in hard-times America.

Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, 2016-03-15

 

The Confirmation becomes a string of father-son misadventures that lack memorable characters or engaging dialogue.

Dana Rose Falcone, Entertainment Weekly, 2016-03-24
