3.5/5 “Alpay and Canning are fantastic as people so used to telling lies they even manage to fool themselves.” – Chris Knight, National Post

9.5/10 “The filmmakers have crafted a superb piece of cinema with several of them pulling double duty both in front and behind the camera. This is the type of Canadian film that deserves to be screened outside our borders as well as within. I look forward to their future projects.” – Shaun Lang, Hollywood North Magazine 

4* “…a riveting portrait of a man who has spent so much time running away from his past that he has lost sight of who he really is.” – Courtney Small, In the Seats

4* “Ouellet’s direction is masterful, affecting a confidently relaxed pace that gradually reveals character and deepens the narrative, opening up the play to thoughtful cinematography. Immensely watchable, and with a few surprises up it’s checked sleeve, Prodigals is an absorbing drama which explores stunted hopes and the folly of ego.” – Benjamin Poole, The Movie Waffler
