Staff Reviews

A tight homecoming story. Coming home to Detroit. With some great asides to race, it's about family, about the city.

— From Jason's Picks


As compelling an urban portrait asThe Wire and a touching love story, Say Nice Things About Detroit takes place in a racially polarized, economically collapsing city that doesn't seem like a place for rebirth. But as David tries to make sense of the mystery behind Natalie's death and puts back the pieces of his own life, he is forced to answer a simple question: if you want to go home again, what do you do if home is Detroit?
