4 stars out of 5 -- "The sustained delicacy of SUGAR's tone and its layered explorations of a unique milieu make this a moving and memorable effort from one of indie cinema's most promising young filmmaking teams."Box Office "[A] wise and lovely new film....Infused with a deep affection for baseball, the rhythms of which are nimbly captured by a narrative pace and editing style that quicken and relax as necessary."New York Times "It's a beautifully made film about a young man's journey of self-discovery....SUGAR is as good as it is because of the care and skill writer-directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck bring to it..."Los Angeles Times "[T]his is a sports drama of total originality, as well as the most authentic inside view of the immigrant experience the movies have given us in quite a while." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly "[A] quietly surprising drama....Though SUGAR demands patience, it deserves attention."Wall Street Journal 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Algenis Perez Soto, a young baseball player in his acting debut, embodies Sugar with a natural sincerity....Baseball is only the backdrop, not the subject. This is a wonderful film."Chicago Sun-Times "Fleck and Boden's compelling character study conveys with understated humor and keen insight how bizarrely foreign the American experience must feel to outsiders. SUGAR is characterized less by grand sweeping arcs than wonderfully realized little moments..." -- Grade: B+A.V. Club 4 stars out of 4 -- "SUGAR is that sweetest of films: A sensitive and memorable story that surprises at every turn....Authentic and poignant..."USA Today "[A] film of rare intelligence, beauty and compassion....Boden and Fleck have an easy, unhurried style, which suits this story well, especially in capturing the lilting rhythms of a minor-league baseball game on a balmy summer night."Washington Post 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] groundbreaking film about race, class, money, sex, isolation, the immigrant experience, lost ideals and -- oh, yeah -- baseball."Rolling Stone 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] tough, tender drama that swerves formula and ducks sentiment, its meticulous human observations and measured movie technique confirming Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck as consummate filmmakers."Total Film Ranked #5 in USA Today's "Top Ten Films Of 2009."USA Today0.0907818
