  • Writer-director Pat Mills balances the sugary sentimentality of the story with the right amount of sour in his smart and snappy dialogue.

  • Even when the film's eccentricities feel too choreographed, it manages to deliver its preordained uplift with good-humored charm.

  • Watching Mills' film, one wishes it were as weird and wonderful as Irene herself. It's almost as if the writer/director doesn't realize how rare his own creation is.

    September 29, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • There's a warm-hearted tale here suffused with wit and a positive and life-affirming message about having the confidence to achieve your goals in the face of adversity.

    September 29, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • From first tentative rehearsals to road trip, you can see where the "let's put on a show" gumption is going. But the newly empowered teenage choreographer and her ragtag troupe ride their own giddy momentum.

    September 12, 2017 | Full Review…
  • An above-average entry in the loveable-misfits comic sub-genre, Don't Talk to Irene is the kind of low-budget gem that can get lost in the glare of the Toronto International Film Festival.
