Movie Info

Sarah (Alison Brie), a socially isolated arts and crafts store employee, finds herself more content in the company of horses and supernatural crime shows than people. But when a series of strangely surreal dreams upend the simplicity of her waking life, Sarah struggles to distinguish her visions from reality. Directed by Jeff Baena, Horse Girl is a darkly humorous psychological thriller about a woman's search for the truth, however abstract it may be.

  • Brie's performance is powerful and the film's editing does a superb job of mixing Sarah's obscured perception with reality, succeeding in offering an unsettling look into the mind of someone who suffers from a severe mental illness.

  • Brie's performance is open and honest and disturbing and funny and lovely and resonant.

    February 11, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Ostensibly, this is a tragedy about mental illness... But "Horse Girl" is far more subversive and playful than just that, allowing for Sarah's peculiar reality to envelope our own.

  • I found the experience of watching Horse Girl to be more of a chore than a pleasure.

    February 9, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The way Brie shows you Sarah slowly slipping out of reality-then steeply sliding further down a snake pit of instability-gives you the sense that she's flexing a new set of muscles.

    February 7, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The ambition of Horse Girl ultimately gets the better of it, turning what could be a dark but insightful depiction on signs missed in a mental health crisis into an agreement on one's madness

    Is she mentally ill or is it a supernatural force driving her crazy? That's the central premise in this odd drama. The performance and premise provided just enough to satisfy me. My, wife, though, went loca with the whole thing.
