Critic Reviews for Girlfriends

All Critics (7)

There is an almost overpowering sense of relief when watching Girlfriends that all stories matter: that the personal politics and insecurities so few of us live without are ... worthy of being projected on cinema screens.

The best American indie film you haven't seen - and the one you should go out of your way to watch as soon as you can.

Girlfriends benefits substantially from Mayron's incredibly appealing lead performance...

Engaging, funny and nuanced. It's a real shame that a picture this good isn't available on DVD.

April 25, 2009 | Full Review…

Claudia Weill (better known for her docus) offers a sympathetically feminist look at a young, unattractive woman who's trying to make it as a photographer in NY, sans help or men.
