The movie's soul isn't its plot but the relationships among the girls.

It would take a heart of stone not to respond to these characters, sympathetically written and sincerely acted.

The kind of movie that might be capable of realistically reflecting teens' lives to other teens.

Rob Blackwelder

A low-budget, low-income slice-of-life movie oozing with community atmosphere and authentic affinity...

Pretentiously paced picture that tosses out a few big societal problems (drugs, shoplifting and, most of all, teen pregnancy) as nonchalantly as turning on a light switch.

Our Song has no illusions about easy fixes. But neither does it traffic in facile despair as its three Graces saunter along the cracked pavement and into our hearts.

| Original Score: 3.5/4

Phantom Tollbooth

In lesser hands, this material would make for a banal after-school special; but writer and director Jim McKay (Girls Town) is clearly comfortable not only with his characters but also the lower-class urban milieu they inhabit.

Has the courage to work without a net, aware that when you're a teenager, your life is not a story so much as a million possible stories.

Rich with scenes of affection, anger and reconciliation, along with moments of unfeigned humor.

A languid but refreshingly real depiction of female adolescence in the inner city.

Takes familiar material and develops it with such tact and skill that we find ourselves moved and sort of amazed at the same time.

Bob Strauss
Los Angeles Daily News

Filmed with such immediacy that it often feels like a documentary and acted true-to-the-bone.

Gregory Weinkauf
New Times

The realism is so effective it feels perilously close to eavesdropping.

McKay captures their environment without condescension.

Marshall Fine
Journal News (Westchester, NY)

The actresses in the central roles give subtle, even painful performances, each one capturing the seesaw emotions of young womanhood.

It simply isn't satisfying, and for all McKay's refusal to succumb to clichéd dramatics the movie needs something.

Refreshingly devoid of emotional hyperbole, but the director's lean, self-effacing style is occasionally less than gripping.

Our Song is the most faithful cinematic depiction of adolescence in recent memory.

It's a stroke of genuine artistry to craft a movie in a raw and glancing documentary style that is not merely 'authentic' but dramatic.
