Movie Reviews

  • written and directed by Sophie Brooks (her first feature), it’s a dawdling-but-not-too-dawdling, crisply shot semi-mumblecore romantic comedy, and taken on its own terms, it works fine
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • the debut feature from writer/director Sophie Brooks, "The Boy Downstairs" grinds a smart concept and structure into the ground with inconsequential results
    Review rate : C- by Jude Dry [Indiewire ]
  • boiled down to its base elements, The Boy Downstairs is Mamet’s show to run, and she runs it well aside a quiet romantic interest and sparse side characters. The faith Brooks puts in Mamet pays off, and together they craft a refreshing romantic comedy
    3.5 of 5 by Jacob Oller [Paste Magazine ]
  • an assured, laid-back debut and a good next move for Zosia Mamet
    by John DeFore [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a penetratingly funny and surprisingly emotionally intense kind of romance that bravely probes the buzz of first love in unexpectedly brilliant ways
    Review rate : B+ by Aubrey Page [Collider ]
