"Courtroom 3H" is a documentary, the director’s first, which is shot with a still camera but is emotionally turbulent. Plunging the viewer straight into Tallahassee’s family court, this questioning, challenging film will travel to wherever fine and nuanced cinema is celebrated.
A determinedly buttoned-down, no-frills affair, "Courtroom 3H" hums along to the clacking of transcription keyboards, to lawyers tapping on their cellphones or their laptops, and the doors swinging open as parents, social services and prospective adopters come in and out of the room. And also, at times, to the sobbing desperation of those hopeful for a better outcome for themselves and their children, even if that isn’t always going to be the same thing. – Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily
