Critic Reviews for Free the Nipple

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

Yes, breasts are a beautiful, natural, baby-nourishing thing, and they've been bizarrely shamed and oversexualized in American culture-but writer-director Lina Esco's amateurish debut is not the film to set them free.

January 13, 2015 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

"Free the Nipple" is a bright, scrappy satire inspired by a real-life movement to nationally legalize a woman's right to go topless in public - just like a man can.

December 26, 2014 | Full Review…

"Free the Nipple" is first and foremost the cinematic equivalent of a billboard.

December 11, 2014 | Full Review…

The movie is so tone deaf, and travels so far from its original feminist ideals, that it's painful to watch.

December 10, 2014 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It's too rare for movies to depict women working together as friends to effect political change, and this one makes it seem righteous, loud, and fun as a rock concert.

December 9, 2014 | Full Review…

As an attempt to promote grassroots advocacy, this low-budget drama feels shallow and takes itself too seriously. But it works just fine as an excuse to see plenty of topless women.

Audience Reviews for Free the Nipple

½

Thinking that this film was a documentary I was very excited to see it. How could I not be with the social media flurry around the likes of Rumer Willis' campaign to go topless around New York City, Miley Cyrus' support of the film thanks to her association with Esco, and countless other pro-feminist celebrities' endorsements? To my total disappointment this is not a documentary, and instead a dramatization of the movement's inception. Yeah, I felt the exact same way you must feel right now.
