[Qu] handles difficult subject matter with heft and grace in equal measure, giving voice to her film's victims without defining them as mere damsels.

In an intriguing film noir full of white light reflecting off virginal dresses, polished surfaces and sparkling sand, director Vivian Qu probes the status of girls in Chinese society.

September 8, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A brave and hard-hitting drama that provides a social context for violence against women.

Top Critic

Luminously filmed but restrained to a fault, this is the kind of drama that suggests something about the difficult position of women in China, but what exactly the film wants to say is harder to pin down.

September 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Vivian Qu's screenplay follows many threads and weaves them together in a hauntingly bitter tapestry. What should be a simple crime to litigate becomes an insidious story of the abuse of power and the re-victimization of victims.

January 18, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Angels Wear White becomes a bottomless pit of despair consuming complex characters with nowhere to go [with] a glimmer of hope at the very end.
