Critic Reviews for Coming Up Roses

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (6)

There's nothing here to catch our eye, or our interest - just AfterSchool Special plot twists and family battles-and-bonding, spiced up with secrets and revelations that aren't nearly as unexpected, or revealing, as the filmmakers might hope.

Village Voice
Top Critic

An escalating melodrama in which drug deals, suicide attempts and sexual predation evoke playtime fabrication rather than world-weary experience.
