Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A first feature that, much like its young protagonist, is sometimes awkward and stiff but always refreshingly candid. And honesty is a tonic to even the most tired genre."

"It draws the audience into an ethical quandary that instills an uncomfortable sense of complicity. As a result, we never end up sympathizing for the main characters or investing in the romance."
‑ Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
"The charming Lola Tash alternates with ease between adorable kid, awkward teen and dangerous seductress. Whatever flaws the film may have can be overlooked because Tash sells them so well."
‑ Radheyan Simonpillai, NOW Toronto
