Variety calls Run & Jump "Irresistable…Remarkable warmth and immediacy…Reserves of strength and joie de vivre.
Hollywood Reporter calls Run & Jump "an ideal vehicle for Will Forte's dramatic debut.. a gentle familial character study that benefits from Green's feel for the setting (with a) resolution which underplays melodrama and avoids sentimentality."
"Last year, Steph Green found herself walking the red carpet at the Oscars, the director of an Oscar-nominated short film, arm-in-arm with an 11-year-old date." Filmmaker Magazine names Steph Green one of 25 New Faces of Independent Film.
New York Times reviewer A.O. Scott says Steph Green's short "New Boy" gets his vote to win the Oscar.
Capital New York writes: "Run & Jump is a minor miracle in the way it avoids convention and formula… some sequences reach an almost profound level of contemplation…Run & Jump is about the powerful heady experience of what it is like to be seen."
Slant Magazine writes: "Green displays a keen eye for striking compositions which manage to be simultaneously ravishing and symbolic without being assaultive … Undoubtedly a name to watch, Green has crafted a debut that is fresh, intimate, and compassionate…"
The Irish Times reports: "Run & Jump triumphs at the Galway Film Fleadh" with a "blend of drama and humor that is well worth savoring"…and in further reviews: "This immaculately acted picture positively throbs with humanity and compassion."
