"The film is exceedingly well-made, making arcane legal theory legible and comprehensible, maintaining a swift and engrossing pace and getting inside inaccessible courtrooms by way of stunning animations directed by Arvid Steen... Most impressively, [filmmakers] Steinberg, Kriegman and Despres follow just the right people to give the audience a candid and often amusing glimpse of the workaday life of an ACLU attorney."—The Washington Post

Ticket buyers can also access a live Q&A with producer Kerry Washington and the ACLU lawyers featured in the film, happening Sunday, August 2 at 7 PM.

"This pseudo-cinema verité film about the final long day’s journey into nowheresville for the besotted, bedraggled, and bewildered patrons of a Las Vegas dive bar dubbed the Roaring Twenties is a miraculous nightmare filled to the brim with heart and overflowing with deliriously sloppy soul."—Austin Chronicle
