"An extraordinary, haunting new documentary that definitively details the tragedy, sets the record straight by laying blame where it deserves to lay and doing honor to the victims."
— Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune
"Gripping reenactments...unspools the story in a fast-paced and surprisingly touching narrative. This is history at its most vivid."
— Library Journal
"Features rare, previously censored newsreel footage."
— Robert Feder, Daily Herald 
"The visuals are stunningly effective and shockingly memorable... “Eastland” tells the stories of a plethora of real-life characters worthy of a big-budget feature film."
— Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

"Exemplary...highly recommended.   (4/4 stars)"
— Video Librarian.
