  • Francesca Eastwood takes after her father, Clint: she's magnetic and convincing as a vigilante, despite her character's implausibly quick switch from wallflower to assassin

    September 25, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Noelle is a millennial Dirty Harry, tackling the social problems that face this generation in a story that's outsized in nature but metaphorically pierces right at the heart of the matter.

    January 5, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Less a pulse-pounding thriller than a conversation starter about injustice and vigilantism.

    October 14, 2017 | Full Review…
  • "M.F.A.'s" themes call for a careful, consistent tone that it is rarely able to maintain, and an increasingly ridiculous third act squanders much of the empathy and engagement that Leite works so hard to build in the early going.

Audience Reviews for M.F.A.

  • May 23, 2018
    M.F.A. is a provocative and disturbing thriller. After being date raped, Noelle (an art school student) turns vigilante; seeking revenge against her attacker and looking into other rape cases on campus that have been ignored or covered up. The film addresses some controversial and topical issues about college campuses and rape; such as trying the victim and prevention verses punishment. It also questions whether violence really solves anything and the morality of vigilante justice. And Francesca Eastwood gives an especially strong performance. It's kind of a formulaic revenge thriller, but M.F.A. has an interesting message...beyond the stereotypical "dig two graves."

    I assume the tile acronym is the shorthand for Master of Fine Arts, but I really hope it stands for Men's Frights Activist.
