Critic Reviews of "The Retrieval"Orange County RegisterMay 15, 2014
The Retrieval's potency transcends its scope. It shows you, in microcosm, the sacrifices that forge the conscience not only of a boy, but of a nation.Los Angeles TimesMay 15, 2014
"The Retrieval" comes at you like a haunting slip of a memory, one that writer-director Chris Eska retrieves from a mostly forgotten era in unforgettable ways.Arizona RepublicApril 24, 2014
It is indeed a beautiful film, but with each horizon tinged with sadness. If it was an Instagram filter, it would probably be called melancholy or something.AV ClubApril 03, 2014
The movie's flaws are not missteps, but steps not taken.New York PostApril 03, 2014
Low-budget period indies rarely inhabit their world as convincingly as does this drama, which is set in the South in 1864.RogerEbert.comApril 02, 2014
Both in its structure and its dialogue, Eska's writing is similarly adroit, and he matches those accomplishments with the topnotch performances he gets from his three leads.The Film StageJune 06, 2016
The film is subtle at times, yet provides an intense depiction of internal destruction, betrayal and sacrifice.Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)May 27, 2014
It's not a coming-of-age movie, and it's not a slavery movie. Nor is 'The Retrieval' a Civil War movie.Playback:stlMay 22, 2014
... less a Civil War picture than a road movie and a coming-of-age tale.Film ThreatMay 19, 2014
Like the subject of a well-told proverb, Will is forced to learn about loyalty and trust while he navigates the dense moral grayness between society's definitions of right and wrong.Movie HabitMay 15, 2014
It's no 12 Years a Slave but this is you how make a good film on a small budgetRedEyeMay 08, 2014
Has guilt and cooperation, self-interest and generosity, and a moving demonstration of the rite of passage that is considering the cowardly path and choosing otherwise.
