      Barry Hertz Globe and Mail The defiantly unique plot is just left to hang here, as Carrick and his mostly game co-stars try to add some emotional weight to the proceedings, an effort Gaston seems mostly ill-equipped to handle. Rated: 2/4 Apr 7, 2017 Full Review Norman Wilner NOW Toronto The Devout opens strong and establishes some interesting stakes, and then all its dramatic tension drains away to nothing. Rated: 2/5 Apr 5, 2017 Full Review Zach Middleton Willamette Week In his feature debut, British Columbian writer and director Connor Gaston shows narrative vision, resourcefulness (the few special effects are reminiscent of the cult sci-fi thriller Primer) and a great deal of potential. Rated: B+ Nov 10, 2016 Full Review Ken Eisner Georgia Straight Although there's an admirable seriousness of intention to this low-budget Canadian entry, stiff acting and flat writing quickly dispel the mystique in a tale of spiritual inquiry.
