Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"First-time director Nate Taylor skillfully evokes a clammy sense of dread in this stealthily suspenseful indie thriller."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"Thanks to some well-drawn characters and tight casting, including Anna Camp and Lindsay Beamish as an exceptionally troubled makeup artist, Taylor overcomes the script's minor implausibilities."
‑ Chris Packham, Village Voice
"Forgetting The Girl...has nothing to offer apart from misdirection. It merely transforms from one kind of lousy movie into another kind of lousy movie."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, The Dissolve
"The frequent use of direct-address narration feels too much like a fiction writer's device, however much it wants to be a hook."
‑ David DeWitt, New York Times
"If anything, that's a reason for applauding a smaller indie like Forgetting the Girl, which has no discernible genre, and is never entirely predictable."
‑ Gabe Toro, The Playlist
"A well observed, well acted character study about damaged souls whose orbits begin to exert a further destabilizing gravitational pull on one another. There's a smooth confidence at work here that never tips over into flamboyant stylistic overreach."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"Written with a poet's ear and directed with an artist's eye ..."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Los Angeles Times
"Surprising, clever and twisted with a convincingly sweet and creepy performance by Christopher Denham."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
