Eric Kohn reviewed the film at Sundance, declaring that, "Nobody else could fit the role of a crestfallen rocker that Paul Dano embodies in director So Yong Kim's remarkable 'For Ellen.' Kim's delicate feature takes the conventional deadbeat dad formula and rejuvenates it by letting Dano's naturalistic performance lead the way." "For Ellen" opens at Film Forum in NYC September 5, and will be available on VOD September 19. Check out the trailer below:
