      Charles Bramesco The Dissolve Williams puts a lot of trust in his ensemble and they deliver, turning out flashes of vulnerability. Ferrera rises to the top, giving an unshowy yet potent performance. Rated: 3/5 Mar 5, 2015 Full Review Mike D'Angelo AV Club The quality of Williams' script varies wildly, from superb to dire. Rated: C Mar 5, 2015 Full Review Dan Brightmore NME (New Musical Express) An occasionally mawkish but moving film... Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 22, 2021 Full Review Cameron Ward One Room With A View X+Y affectingly brings exposition and empathy to the forefront of a commonly exploited and oversimplified subject-matter. Rated: 4/5 May 31, 2019 Full Review John Fink The Film Stage A vanity project that is, above all, a mixed bag. Rated: C- Feb 23, 2016 Full Review David 'Mad Dog' Bradley Rip It Up This low-key effort manages to almost make you feel like you understand maths - almost - while also suggesting that in the end, there's little point in bothering when understanding each other is so much more important. Rated: 3.5/5 Jan 1, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Involves you in parts but the story fails to inspire in this big screen adaptation (of a novel). Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Predictable, plus pretentious, cliche. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member o tórrido sexo gay completamete aleatório com 2 amigos supostamete heteros é o que salva o filme do total desastre rsrsrsrs Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member A story's ability to tell itself can shift greatly between the first written page and the final act. "X/Y" is a visually stunning independent film shot by Pedro Gomez Milan and brought up further in sound and vision with a formidable score by Will Bates. Director and writer Ryan Williams' view of relationships in his city comes off as muted, made more so by his confusing acting choices in playing the protagonist, Mark. However, Williams' biggest filmmaking achievement here--and where he truly shines as an artist--is in his casting choices. What he lacks in experience, his actors make up for ten-fold and are what truly give this movie the hip edge of which Williams writes. Perhaps he really has spoken with "five hipsters in Williamsburg," but I do believe that the characters of Jen and Jake have lived there. Ferrera puts in a strong effort as Sylvia, although one wonders if her character's relationship issues with Mark come from a deeper understanding. This film's brightest lights are the always-engaging Melonie Diaz, whose lost portrayal of Jen we love to judge and can't help loving, and newcomer Jon Paul Phillips in a refreshing star turn. His shuddering portrayal of Jake makes me embarrassed for all men who--watching his complicated masks of vulnerability--are forced to recognize our own. Phillips' Jake struggles so precisely and is inspiring in the act. Galvanizing. This guy is special. In short, "X/Y" is a modestly good script made greater on screen by Diaz and Phillips.
