All Critics (82) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (51) | Rotten (31)

  • Chemical Hearts is a journey of self-discovery that captures the thrills, disappointments and confusion of being a teenager.

    September 22, 2020 | Full Review…
  • While the travails of adolescence never really change, surely we can find new ways of exploring them.

  • Indeed, it's a film that considers young heartbreak so earnestly, it risks taking itself too seriously, too.

    August 22, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Tanne... also hits the physiological explanation of the pain of heartbreak (from which the book and movie draw their titles) pretty hard.

    August 22, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The film's strength is the way it respectfully handles that transitional period and the strange chemical makeup of the teenage experience.

    August 21, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • For a story that leans so hard into (and sometimes gently pushes back against) the most cringe-worthy tropes of its genre, "Chemical Hearts" has an uncanny way of capturing the basic combustibility of teenage feelings.
