  • Critic Reviews
    "Lee delivers an entertaining light comedy about a real-life person who somewhat inadvertently helped the whole iconic concert to take place."
    Hollywood Reporter

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] gentle, anecdotal comedy that has oodles of nostalgic charm, as the locals of the Catskills find themselves swept up in an event whose transformative power changed a generation."
    Box Office

    3 stars out of 4 -- "This is a comedy with some sweet interludes....TAKING WOODSTOCK has the freshness of something being created, not remembered."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[A] meticulously rendered and achingly authentic portrait of a time and a place....The filmmaker has an acutely sensitive eye for family and tradition..."
    Los Angeles Times

    Washington Post

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Lee shows the experience from the outskirts...we see Woodstock as most attendees saw it: down among the mud and chaos...'
