★★★★ - Empire
"It's not an easy watch, but Never Rarely Sometimes Always is a necessary, unflinching portrait of young women trying to do right by themselves in a world seemingly against them at every turn."
"With stunning performances from two completely genuine young leads, this is a movie people will talk about all year." - RogerEbert.com
At once dreamlike and ruthlessly naturalistic, steadily composed yet shot through with roiling currents of anxiety, Never Rarely Sometimes Always is a quietly devastating gem. - Variety
