Reviews:
3 stars out of 4 -- "SATURDAY CHURCH is a sweet film with a purity of purpose and intent, elevating it above other films portraying similar struggles." - 01/12/2018 RogerEbert.com


"[H]eartfelt...endearing as it escapes into interior-monologue numbers and expressive dance breaks to mark out the exploration of sexuality and gender identity of a Bronx teenager, played with lovely subdued intensity by newcomer Luka Kain." - 04/23/2017 Hollywood Reporter


"[C]onstructive in the way it invites viewers to consider and discuss issues of intolerance and hypocrisy, even as it encourages those who don’t fit the straight, marriage-oriented paradigm to embrace their own identities." - 04/29/2017 Variety


"Sensitively written and directed by Damon Cardasis, the movie is punctuated by an affecting string of musical numbers that deepen and enliven this lovely, vital tale." - 01/11/2018 Los Angeles Times


"It is a disarmingly and consistently sensitive movie that remains engaging....The wonderful cast brings the story home, and Mr. Kain in particular is a real find." - 01/11/2018 New York Times
