New York Daily News
It is a sign of the times that audiences will watch these equally selfish lovers and find one infinitely more sensible than the other.

The New York Times
Smart, resourceful indie.

Variety
Filmmakers' own left-leaning sympathies are occasionally felt around the margins, but Conventioneers achievement lies in its honoring the sincerity and passion on both sides.

As contrived as this premise may sound (and it isn't much better on-screen), writer-director Mora Stephens manages to push the odd-couple story in some interesting directions.

New York Post
Since they seem like real people we want them to work out their differences. In the second half, their story is nearly lost in favor of lots of documentary footage of the actual protests. This stuff was pretty ho-hum to look at two years ago, and it hasn't gotten more interesting with age.

Unlike in "Medium Cool," the most telling and dramatic events aren't shown.
