“It’s impossible not to be charmed on some level by Jung Henin and Laurent Boileau’s Approved for Adoption.”
VARIETY
 

“Adapted from the graphic novel by the acclaimed Korea-born, Belgium-raised writer/artist known as “Jung,” and co-directed with Laurent Boileau, it offers a series of vignettes from a mostly happy childhood in the 1970s and early 1980s with wryly amusing results.”
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
 

“Deeply moving, as well as literally illuminating”
