Becks Reviews

February 14, 2019
An inconsistent take on a somewhat overdone premise.

The film wears its identity on its sleeve without making it the sole focus of the feature. Instead, the film acts as a lovely and complicated portrait of arrested development.

There isn't a moment in "Becks" that doesn't feel fresh, enriched by the little details that Powell and Rohrbach build into the film.

It's an impressive directorial debut from Powell and Rohrbaugh, who have effectively made the transition from the small screen to the big screen, without compromising on the quality of their writing.

Amidst often awkward reintroductions to her former high school pals, Becks is hanging on, finding herself in this honest, appealing profile that respects the daily struggles of a resilient, but adrift woman.

Skilfully shot and acted, this warm drama is grounded in an earthy sense of authenticity

Thomas Wolfe said in the title of his 1940 novel, You Can't Go Home Again. "Becks" proves that you can, but it is not going to be the same one you left.

[D]espite its thinness, has much to recommend it: some catchy music, believable passion and a highly likeable performance by Lena Hall in a rather prickly role.

The Alyssa Robbins music is satisfying.

This is a simple but attentive study of a woman who knows the kind of person she is but can't quite figure out how to find her place in the world.

Like its heroine, "Becks" is unsure and all over the place, lacking a central focus. But like Becks herself, its messiness ultimately draws us in and keeps us watching.

With Becks, directors Elizabeth Rohrbaugh and Daniel Powell have crafted an understated musical that really works, thanks to Alyssa Robbins's heartfelt music and standout performances from the cast.

The movie exemplifies how small judgments in pace, performance and soundtrack can transcend modest trappings.
February 7, 2018
What they've captured is so natural, so real, it announces Powell and Rohrbaugh as filmmakers to watch and Hall as an all around talent.

Hall and Suvari have a palpable chemistry, both musically and in their relationship. But despite effective moments, "Becks," like its central character, never finds its footing.
February 6, 2018
A relatively simple yet always poignantly observed indie drama with a potential breakthrough turn from its lead performer. As the eponymous Becks, Lena Hall is a double threat: she can sing extraordinarily well, and she can act like nobody's business.

Old fashioned queer cinema comfort food...likable.

Lena Hall is just perfect in the title character's many imperfect ways.

"Becks" is the kind of modest, non-earthshaking indie enterprise that ends up being so satisfying mostly because it's about a character type familiar from real life but all too under-represented at the movies.

Certainly this appealing character-driven musical deserves to find an audience.
