  • Seems less and less convincing the more blatantly it strives for authenticity.

  • A Girl Like Her unfolds with a clear-eyed approach to the subject - a drama that fleshes out the principals and shows, without excusing the bully, that pain is not the exclusive domain of the victim.

  • Hunter King is believably despicable as the prototypical Mean Girl, but we DO feel empathy for Avery as she begins to realize the depths of the destruction she caused.

    Mar 27, 2015 | Rating: 3.0
  • Performed with unflinching honesty, it's a story that'll be familiar to countless teens, and the film could well have a long life as required, vivid viewing for high-schoolers, who'll have plenty to discuss after its poignant ending.

    Mar 27, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The narrative momentum quickly stalls out, as the story adds little to dynamics of high school bullying. The characters are two-dimensional at best, with dubious and paper-thin motivations.

  • The two young female leads, exceptionally well cast, deliver strong performances, and the drama benefits from Weber's interest in understanding rather than demonizing the bully.

Audience Reviews for A Girl Like Her

  • Jun 07, 2016
    Propaganda, even propaganda for a cause I can get behind, is not something I typically gravitate towards. A Girl Like Her is absolutely not a bad film (although it is (only at times) badly acted. It has multiple touching moments (which I respect) and is about an important topic (which is close to home), but in terms of an overall movie in and of itself, it's not that great either. I also have difficulty accepting the film's final resolutions, but the person I watched it with did not, so take that with a grain of salt.
