CRITIC’S PICK! Robert May’s KIDS FOR CASH takes a lacerating look at America’s juvenile justice system…Without sensationalizing his already scandalous material, Mr. May arranges the contributions of reporters, lawyers and anguished relatives of young offenders into a shocking and impartial portrait of justice denied and childhoods erased.

–Jeannette Casoulis, The New York Times

KIDS FOR CASH proves that the abuse was both more nuanced and more tragic than the public understood…Some will say ‘he got his’ and move on, but this moving documentary shows that for the kids he sentenced, it isn’t that easy.

–Stephanie Merry, The Washington Post
