Movie Critics
Hollywood Reporter
"A portrait of a clearly remarkable man whose counsel was sought by popes, presidents, students and advice columnists, the documentary is stuffed with both history and praise..."
John DeFore (2 May 2019, )
New York Times
"[T]he movie, directed by Patrick Creadon, is most impressive in recounting Hesburgh’s tireless work, from the 1950s to the ’70s, on the United States Commission on Civil Rights."
Glenn Kenny (2 May 2019, )
Washington Post
3 stars out of 4 -- "In fractious and bellicose times, it’s tough out there for conciliators. Which makes HESBURGH, Patrick Creadon’s lively and inspiring portrait of one of the most influential Americans of the 20th century, more welcome than ever."
