      Audience Member This production's crew has done cultural appropriation by allowing a hearing person to steal a role of a Deaf character who uses American Sign Language. No different than giving the role to a white actress for a colored character. This is unacceptable, sickening and the movie itself has shot its own feet when the production crew refused to hire a Deaf actress with an excuse saying that we must give it a watch before we can criticize the movie but the problem is that from the very beginning they insulted the Deaf community. There are several Deaf actresses who would fit in that character prefectly. The best way to find a Deaf actress or actor is by checking out the Deaf Talent. They have experiences in broadway, one of them won a oscar, one of them is on the way to win a tony award and the list goes on. It is unacceptable, just as it would be if the role were given to a white actor for a colored character. If you have a respect for the Deaf community, please avoid this movie at all cost and do not give this movie any attention as it does not deserve so.

      Violet Lucca Film Comment Magazine Though it's tempting to dismiss the film's strong visuals (...) there are a million other ways to be bored or underwhelmed at the cinema. This one at least creates a little space to dream. Jan 16, 2015 Full Review Glenn Kenny RogerEbert.com At the end, I felt suspended between "so beautiful" and "so what." (Sorry for lifting your phrase, Paul Simon.) Rated: 2/4 Jan 16, 2015 Full Review Kiva Reardon AV Club With limited dialogue and long takes, Medeas quietly builds to inevitable tragedy, exploring the darkest corners of desire, jealously, and unforgivable transgressions. Rated: B- Jan 15, 2015 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com Manages to lull us into a hypnotic state where passion and heartbreak are conveyed as quietly as whispering winds through haze filled fields. Aug 23, 2019 Full Review Arturo Magaña Cine Premiere The tense atmosphere will take the viewer on a roller coaster of emotions that ends in a haunting finale. [full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Jun 12, 2015 Full Review Tina Hassannia The Dissolve With a foregone conclusion in place, small gestures start to seem ridiculous, even bordering on melodramatic in their microscopic form. Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 15, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews
