      Rick Groen Globe and Mail A first feature that, much like its young protagonist, is sometimes awkward and stiff but always refreshingly candid. And honesty is a tonic to even the most tired genre. Rated: 3/4 Apr 19, 2013 Full Review Bruce DeMara Toronto Star It draws the audience into an ethical quandary that instills an uncomfortable sense of complicity. As a result, we never end up sympathizing for the main characters or investing in the romance. Rated: 1.5/4 Apr 18, 2013 Full Review Radheyan Simonpillai NOW Toronto The charming Lola Tash alternates with ease between adorable kid, awkward teen and dangerous seductress. Whatever flaws the film may have can be overlooked because Tash sells them so well. Rated: 4/5 Apr 18, 2013 Full Review Sarah Gopaul Digital Journal Most of the story unfolds in a creative environment. Nonetheless, the photographs that are significant to the narrative are as beautiful as the characters describe. Mar 1, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member It's the same all teenagers love and sexual curiosity. It's a little surprise film. The theme was a bit inappropriate, but there's nothing seriously offensive in the narration in the name of art and everything was explained loud and clear. Especially the way it ended seems the best one from any angle. If you are a parent, that too for a teenager, you will get it. So this is the story of the 16 year old girl Molly, who attends a progressive school. Her new undertaking is the photography which is guided by her English teacher whom she develops a crush. Since teacher-student should not involve in any kind of close relationship, their's attraction to each other will be tested. But how it will be dealt was focused on the remains. I really kind of liked it. Though this is not the first time in a film to focus on an affair between a teacher and his student. But, how nicely and properly portrayed that issue was the highlight in this. There are no familiar faces, maybe because it is a Canadian film. It was a simple story, so no extraordinary performances, but I liked the girl in the title role. The first feature film for the director and he also wrote the screenplay. Overall a decent film, but a great indie. You should check it out if you are convinced with what I said so far. So I say go for it. 6.5/10 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Molly Maxwell is a great coming-of-age film which follows Molly's journey of finding her interests and finding her place in the world - with a little help from her English teacher. A romance forms between the two, though, risking the teachers reputation and Molly's social life. A sweet, feel-good, coming-of-age film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member my current fave movie. I really loved their romance. Wish there was a part 2 of the movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member I wasn't going to give this movie a chance because it sounded like it wouldn't be very easy to watch, but the story turned out to be very good. The movie was well done. I only wish it would have had a more fulfilling ending. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Surprising freshness and appeal in its leads - don't be turned off by mores of the teacher but rather accept the director's vision that this is a first romance as seen from the girl's POV. This provides then a good parallel world to the one adults live in and the inevitable clash is sublimely dealt with. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member An honest, charming and innocent coming-of-age tale. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews
