From Variety (Robert Koehler):
Free-floating and bucolic… Colella’s tale of a lad’s seminal summer will win hearts and minds.
From MSN Movies (Danny Miller):
Funny, heartwarming… This deceptively simple story is beautifully executed and packs a big emotional wallop… a poignant coming of age story.
From the Huffington Post (John Lopez):
On the lower-fi segment of the spectrum, you often have the most heart, and Breakfast with Curtis turns out to be one of those surprises… a mellowed-out, jazzy free-form riff of eccentricity that is the perfect thing to stumble on after a handful of brunch-time Bloody Marys when you’re in need of a cool place to wait out the mid-day heat.
