Film Review: Like It Was Yesterday

THE KIDS GROW UP (in theaters; Copacetic Pictures)


| November-December 2010


In this intimate first-person documentary, filmmaker Doug Block takes a common experience in many parents’ lives—watching their child leave home for college—and transforms it into an absorbing, affecting, and universal story. As in Block’s previous 51 Birch Street, an eye-opening look at his parents’ relationship, the film’s honest and convivial approach—mixing light comedy and severe depression—avoids schmaltziness. Rather, Block’s chronicle of empty nest syndrome goes deeper, ultimately becoming a profound and resonant contemplation of parenthood and youth’s swift passing.
