  • Critic Reviews
    "[W]hat makes 51 Birch Street so gripping is its particularity....Mr. Block has put his parents' life, and his own, into this film with such warmth and candor that it may take more than one viewing to recognize it as a work of art."
    New York Times

    "The surprisingly moving result is a warm and honest portrait of a marriage at its most mysterious, and ordinary." -- Grade: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] raw, riveting portrait emerges of what a child sees in his parents' relationship and what lies beneath."
