      Tomris Laffly Variety An uncertain script saddles a stylish coming-of-age movie full of Los Angeles love. Jan 25, 2023 Full Review Robert Daniels The Playlist The visual prowess and narrative daring—while not enough to like the film—are such that you’re immediately anticipating what Banks will do next. Rated: C Jan 24, 2023 Full Review Elizabeth Weitzman TheWrap When a film revisits stories, characters and locations so similar to ones we’ve seen before, it requires a particularly strong point of view to rise above the realm of homage — or cliché. Jan 23, 2023 Full Review Lucas Moore JVS Media & Productions/Team JVS It's very reminiscent of 90s, early 2000s coming of age black cinema. While a shocking twist in the third act almost takes you out of it the characters and story is so strong you'll forgive it. Rated: B Aug 1, 2023 Full Review Zach Pope Zach Pope Reviews Algee Smith & Sierra Capri are FIERCE, POWERFUL, & STELLAR in #YoungWildFree. A heartbreaking character study that is a great directorial debut for Thembi Banks! I found the script to be a bit thin at points but the direction is GREAT. Rated: B+ Jul 20, 2023 Full Review Louisa Moore Screen Zealots A mostly by-the-book story of an ill-fated romance, but the vivid cinematography and chemistry between the two leads gives the film a unique, intoxicating vibe.
