“..tangle with the idea that this socially inept, economically disadvantaged, extraordinarily bright kid is just what the Princeton student body needs-and what the admissions system guarantees Princeton is unlikely to get..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
“..if the cast weren't so endearing, her actions could easily sour an audience on the whole experience, and "Admission" digs itself a hole only an ensemble this appealing can escape..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..but faced with the bad reviews and blah word of mouth they're about to get, the producers of "Admission" would take that in a heartbeat..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]

by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”

THE BRONZE :
