Year of the Carnivore
Sammy Smalls (Cristin Milioti), a twenty-something tomboy, wants to find love that will stick, and a job that doesn't make her queasy with guilt (she hunts down shoplifters at the local grocery stoe and delivers them to her abusive boss). Most of all, she wants to be better in bed -- but how does a quirky girl with limited experience pursue a more worldly existence? The indie romantic comedy-drama Year of the Carnivore tracks her charmingly laviscuous journey towards self-discovery and sexual self-confidence. ~ Carly Wray, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Any picture with a legitimate claim as a good sex comedy is obliged to be (a) sexy and (b) comic. If neither, then what's left?"
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"A decidedly quirky yet endearing comedy that wears its Juno crush like a hickey -- and I mean that in a good way."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"All in all, there's a sweetness to The Year of the Carnivore that survives its flaws. It is not successful as a comedy in the sense of there being a lot of laughs. But it is an interesting and different character portrait."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
