"'Homebound' resoundingly cements Morgan and Company’s sterling reputation in the indie film community as the aboundingly capable, altogether consistent gem of filmmaking prowess they are, here presenting us with another entirely grounded, influentially immersive dive into the realm of struggle and determination, fear and freedom, and the always present actuality of indie film’s dominant presence when it comes to telling overtly human stories while being an example of what the art of film should really be about–undisguised fervor and artistry." ~ One Film Fan
"HomeBound works perfectly as a self-contained, intimate character piece. It tells an uplifting, emotionally resonant story which is executed expertly through precise direction and a fantastic lead performance, with a powerful message about the human drive to face our fears and overcome the obstacles life throws at us. This endearing short comes highly recommended." ~ UK Film Review
