“..until it flies off the rails in a third act so devoid of logic it could have been concocted on the moon..”
by Gary Goldstein [Los Angeles Times]
1.5 of 4

“..there’s a fair amount of greening, but that doesn’t make Whitney any less grating..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
“..the film, both in scope and tone, has a downsized vibe that would have made it a much better fit on an ABC Family than in a movie theater..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
“..its shiny confidence in the entertainment value of blaring soundtrack cues..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
1.5 of 4

“..it's all extraordinarily predictable, made no more palatable by flat characters and a dull cast..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..has few pretensions to depth, ambiguity or realism, relying on its name cast..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]
“..Gail Gilchriest's airheaded script grafts "Cinderella" to "My Super Sweet 16" with a grating lack of originality..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [New York Times]
2.5 of 4

“..by turns pleasant and preposterous..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

WAR ROOM :

“..are so heavy on broad pulpit pounding that it's challenging to get swept along by the story's message..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

ZIPPER :

“..on all counts, "Zipper" comes up short..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

TURBO KID :

“..it feels like amateur hour, but for fans of low-rent thrills it's kind of fun..”
by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
