Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Through the musical numbers, Songbirds achieves an artistic and emotional clarity that all the talking-head interviews in the world could never produce."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"The film clearly raises questions about the nature of sentencing in the UK - two "duped" drug mules, for example, are serving a mind-blowing 18 years."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"Audiences will be in for a unique experience featuring some of the rawest musical numbers you're bound to see for a good long while."
‑ Eric Campos, Film Threat
