Medora Hi-Res Image Archive

"Medora exerts an unshakable hold. No spoilers here, but there won't be a dry eye in the house. Thanks to filmmakers of unfailing sensitivity, as well as protagonists of exceptional character and resolve, Medora earns every tear." -- The Washington Post

"Gently affecting... a mournful Midwestern ballad. Sustained by Hoosier pride, the Medora Hornets — like their town — just don't know how to give up." -- The New York Times

"This stellar, incisive slice-of-life doc centers on the kind of crowd-pleasing competition story that lures in audiences and then lays bare heartsick truths about small-town America today."-- The Village Voice

"Medora scores some winning points in powerful fashion... An evocative portrait of a small town."-- The Hollywood Reporter

" ...That’s why I was sitting in a Medora screening, at noon on an otherwise chirpy day at SXSW in Austin, nearly weeping as the boys struggled to win one single game." -- TIME Magazine

"The year’s most important sports documentary, and might also be the best one too." --

"Medora demonstrates the dignity and distinction that refuse to let such communities fade quietly into the night."--

"Deeply personal."-- Rooftop Films

"Filmmakers Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart deliver a bleakly potent portrait of life in an economically devastated Middle American town."-- Variety

"Rothbart and Cohn’s sensitive handling of their stories makes Medora a powerful testament to one little town’s determination to survive."-- Columbia Journalism Review

“Without a doubt, Medora will be compared to last year’s feature documentary Oscar winner, Undefeated, which followed a season with the worst high school football team in Tennessee. There are obvious similarities, and Medora is already proving to be an audience and critical favorite." -- Film School Rejects

"An especially powerful and perceptive film, ripe for a larger discussion... the film transcends the underdog sports doc... it tells a timely and important story with raw immediacy."-- The Film Stage

"A large part of what makes Medora so deeply moving is that it makes us want the American dream for our fellow Americans."-- Collider
