Alexandra Heller-Nicholas AWFJ.org A beautiful meditation on life, love, family and the fear of opening ourselves up to unknown futures, The Greenhouse is a confident, quiet treasure. Oct 10, 2021 Full Review Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News Wilson-White acutely conveys how grief and loss can stifle us and conveniently deter us from our own attractions. It's one audacious debut. Jun 10, 2021 Full Review Elle Haywood Vague Visages Wilson-White composed a gripping, emotional and funny tale about memory and the emotive power of letting go, one that will appeal to those looking for an inviting escape from reality. May 15, 2023 Full Review Mel Campbell ScreenHub I found myself exasperated by this film’s focus on atmosphere at the expense of developing characters and ideas so they deliver a satisfying emotional payoff. Rated: 3/5 Aug 28, 2022 Full Review Andiee Paviour Nobody's Reading This But Me The spectres of the past take possession of the present in a supernatural drama with a skin-crawling cautionary kick. Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 25, 2021 Full Review Nicola Austin We Have a Hulk The Greenhouse is an ambitious and deeply personal exploration of grief, family dynamics and the difficulties of accepting one's true self.
