“Girl With the Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev’s coming-of-age dramedy features a strong young Danish cast.”
— The Hollywood Reporter
“Pleasing sexual candor spikes the polyester nostalgia of Niels Arden Oplev’s semi-sweet coming-of-age comedy.”
“There’s an emotional honesty that shines throughout, largely because it doesn’t try to be “universal” in the way so many coming of age movies bend over backwards in their attempts to be.”
