“It isn’t every movie that allows an actor to lose 15 years and do a little gender bending while she’s at it. But that’s what happens with Adepero Oduye, the star of Dee Rees’s semi-autobiographical coming-of-age drama…Oduye is blessed with a megawatt smile, but apart from that she’s a master of understatement. Without having to say or do a lot, she draws us close to Alike and keeps us there. We can tell when she’s hurting, and we hurt too. ”
Karen Durbin, New York Times [Read More]

“The closest that cultivated emigré [director Douglas] Sirk would come to making a European art film at Universal studios is a svelte 1958 adaptation of William Faulkner’s novel of itinerant stunt fliers. The movie is iconic, morbid, and stocked with symbols—it’s a shadowy dans macabre rather than a gaudy mambo of desire.”
J. Hoberman, Village Voice
