Critic Reviews for Mary Is Happy, Mary Is Happy

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

  • Mary is Happy, Mary is Happy is based on 410 consecutive tweets from a teenager called Mary Maloney. It's actually quite an intriguing, episodic attempt to channel a new form of communication into an old medium. Up to a point.

  • Beneath the modern veneer, something timeless emerges: a (pretty good) coming-of-age story.

  • Characters, whilst somewhat sympathetic, never feel fully fleshed out and the teenage angst that pours from the screen is hard to relate to when the world it inhabits is so alien.

  • a teenage girl's coming-of-age story, surreally reconstructed from 410 of a young Thai woman's consecutive tweets (which regularly punctuate the screen as a dynamic counterpoint to the events that we see).

  • Mary is Happy, Mary is Happy is a genuine original: a sort of Celine and Julie Go Tweeting.
