"Recent graduate Mikkelsen is spot-on as a budding idealist who finds direction when he joins African Americans and Jewish immigrants in their struggle for civil rights."
- Barbara Vitello, Northwest Daily Herald
"Jackson Mikkelsen as Mother’s Younger Brother, shows a percussive recognition of an innocent, naive and restless soul who becomes a sympathetic revolutionary. He is another strong performer."
