Tanna Frederick's character "Kathy" continues to push forward despite her sufferings.

Film Threat (Bradley Gibson) was pleased, "...happy to report that this film doesn't fall into any 'issue' film traps."

Carl Weathers (Star Wars, Chicago Justice, Rocky) applauds, "Two Ways Home delivers a profound message about the power of family and the possibility of triumph when a worm, played by Tanna Frederick, perseveres in spite of bi-polar disorder."
