WSJ calls Martha & Ethel “a powerfully absorbing film”

From the Wall Street Journal:

“…the two have produced a powerfully absorbing film. On one level, “Martha & Ethel” is a piece of American social history that weaves interviews, family photographs and archival footage for a penetrating look at class and family. On another, it’s an intensely personal document: a struggle to make sense of a pair of gilded and apparently unhappy childhoods.”
