A really good story of the complexities of family and coming to terms with your past and reconciling that with your present and future. The struggle of loving what you are and who your people are while realizing the deep flaws of humanity. A really, really good movie.

SJW critics dislike the movie because they hate regular people in the middle of the country.

The film strives for Oscar significance, but it's not as good as it thinks it is. That being said, despite a scathing critical response from some, it's not that bad, and the story reminded me of a portion of my life working within a similar community to that presented in the film.

A very well acted and directed poignant family story. A reminder of two underrated principles: 1-the struggles of life can affect people of many different skin colors 2-in america you can succeed no matter what background you come from.

This movie isn’t as bad as some people would have you believe, however it’s just completely and totally generic, like something from the 90s, cliches and melodrama included. Every single scene felt like I've seen it before. It just moves from one cliched plot point to another. And if you saw More

This is another entry in the wrenching genre of Oprah book club family dysfunction fare. The dysfunction extends through two generations here, plenty of material to mine for lousy parenting and distressing reality show-worthy bad behavior.

It is well done I suppose, as you would expect from Ron H More

This film is based on a memoir of the same title written by J.D. Vance, the man who gives name to the main character or, in better words, the character whose point of view is what the movie describes More

Interesting and hearty story, which helps 'Hillbilly Elegy' overcome the fact it probably isn't that great a film as a whole.

I enjoyed watching the cast. Gabriel Basso gives a good performance in the role of J. D. Vance, though is outshone by Owen Asztalos; who plays the younger version More
