  • Reception

    Susanna Ulrich of the Los Angeles Film Festival said of Jesus Freak: "By turns wistful, poignant and offbeat, the debut feature from director Morgan Nichols ultimately captures the confusion of adolescence with a rare, touching grace." Variety said "There's a Claire Danes quality to Bahr's gentle, nuanced performance that solidly anchors the film."
