Rich Hill intimately chronicles the turbulent lives of three boys living in an impoverished Midwestern town and the fragile family bonds that sustain them.

"Rich Hill doesn’t just make you feel like you know these boys; it makes you care about them."
- Michael Sullivan, Washington Post
"It emerges as an artistic statement as multi-faceted, nuanced and hauntingly original as any of its fictional counterparts."
- Godfrey Cheshire,
"A truly moving and edifying film, Rich Hill is the type of media object that could and should be put in a time capsule for future generations."
- Katie Walsh, The Playlist
"Co-directors Andrew Droz Palermo and Tracy Droz Tragos let the painful stories emerge naturally, without prodding questions or talking-head experts who place the boys’ grim lives in the larger context of the post-industrial economy."
- Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Frustrating, at times agonizing, the film is nonetheless dappled with a sad beauty. It’s one of the best documentaries of the year."
- Kyle Smith, New York Post
"The brutally sparse documentary Rich Hill removes poverty from the realm of the abstract and makes it personal."
- Barbara VanDenburgh, Arizona Republic
"Inside these average American lives are futures far too often passed over or, worse, written off. This terrific film gives the teenagers their due."
- Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Often heartbreaking, Rich Hill presents real life as few filmgoers know it. In certain respects it’s almost as if cultural anthropologists descended on a foreign land, but, unfortunately, it’s a withered part of this nation that is rarely visited."
- Duane Byrge, The Hollywood Reporter
