“The feature is a visual poem, an enveloping four-stanza ode to experiences shared by a man and his daughters.”

Lovia Gyarkye

The Hollywood Reporter

“These understated scenes of familial intimacy introduce Lacorazza Samudio as a director with a deft hand for crafting character development from lived-in behavior rather than dialogue.” ““In the Summers” is the type of personal, confidently executed first outing that should hopefully put the filmmaker on an auspicious track to produce other keenly humanist work.”

Carlos Aguilar


“The most impressive work belongs to that of Residente, a Puerto Rican rapper otherwise known as René Pérez Joglar. As [Vicente], Residente avoids the pitfalls of playing bad fathers… Residente finds the subtlety in his flaws" “Because of this attention to the environment that shapes these hot days, “In the Summers” is brimming full of its characters’ internal aches rendered elegantly across time.”

Esther Zuckerman
