The reviews are starting as we prepare for our release on Oct 11th. Here’s what the press is saying about Forgetting the Girl:
The New York Times says “there’s a moment when the thriller leaves behind the twitches of its characters’ psychological troubles and moves headlong into the full-bodied shivers.”
The LA Times says it’s “a nuanced, image-driven film” that’s “written with a poet’s ear and directed with an artist’s eye” and it’s “as much about art as it is sexual politics”
And, the Village Voice calls it “a slow narrative burn” with “well-drawn characters and tight casting”
We’ll post more reviews as they come.
