      Steve D Not enough riot girl far too much stilted dialog. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/19/23 Full Review Audience Member This could have been one of those horrible boring indie films where youths are horrible to each other and die in stupid ways a la Ken Park. If it were not for the fact this film is actually good. The characters' arcs are emotionally verisimilitudinous, their actions feel true, and the stakes feel real. The film somehow simultaneously lulled me into a false sense of security while keeping me on edge throughout, keeping me interested until the last frame. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A coming of age story focusing on friendship. Story is interesting, but nothing special, good performances from the young cast and an appearance by Leisha Hailey. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member I don't regret having watched this movie for a second Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Not the best lesbian movie I've seen but by far not the worst!! You can only try so hard and so much till you have no choice but to move on!! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member this had felt like "indie-painful" in the first ten minutes of its opening but ok, good that i gave it a fair chance cos it wasn't so bad. quite a sincere effort actually and though not one of those must -sees I'd go round recommending mates, it did 'growing up pains' rather well.

      Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: B+ Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Emanuel Levy Variety Though the main charcater is lesbian, Sichel's gritty youth melodrama is so rich in ideas amd so roght in its texture that it goes beyond a coming-out ot even a lesbian-themed story. Rated: 4/5 Jun 29, 2006 Full Review Manohla Dargis L.A. Weekly Given great lyrical force by Folland, it comes closer to unlocking the secret lives of girls than any other recent American movie. Oct 3, 2002 Full Review Mark J. Huisman The Advocate Despite some pacing problems, Sichel draws first-rate performances from her cast. Credit must also go to screenwriter Sylvia Sichel, Alex's sister, for creating such interesting characters. Jun 7, 2022 Full Review Michael Atkinson Spin Scrupulously realistic and acutely observed. Apr 18, 2022 Full Review Jas Keimig The Stranger (Seattle, WA) The movie documents the nuances in girl friendship at a fragile age that sometimes revels in syrupy, afterschool special type drama. But it's a gay, riot grrrl-light teen flick. Dec 9, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
