  • Channing Godfrey Peoples's debut -- the mellow, tender-hearted Miss Juneteenth -- is a portrait of a life robbed of its dreams.

  • For anyone who values diverse storytelling, Peoples' portrait of a hardworking woman on the up is a tale of hopefulness - and a reason to hope in itself.

  • A really sweet movie. It's a little loose, but I think it really fits with the story itself, which kind of meanders its way into a kind of sweet feeling.

  • Miss Juneteenth benefits from subtle, offhand performances from Beharie and Chikaeze; as a portrait of a community, it's layered and rich.
