I can't believe more people aren't talking about Mouthpiece, one of the best, most creative films that I've seen in years.
September 20, 2019
The best movie of the year, Mouthpiece, is Canadian, set in Toronto, and written and directed by women and about women... The dual performance...allows them to represent two sides of a complex woman who is constantly in conflict with herself.

...the picture benefits substantially from Nostbakken and Sadava's impressively strong work...

Mouthpiece's milieu is grief, but its unique execution makes it sing.
June 10, 2019
There's no denying the bracing, honest nature of "Mouthpiece," a truly revolutionary piece of filmmaking.

Mouthpiece is a risk that pays huge dividends as it fully realizes one woman's interior life and struggles
June 7, 2019
Mouthpiece is not an easy watch, especially for those still emotionally bruised by recent loss, but this emotional examination of women moving through society is cathartic and moving.
June 7, 2019
Mouthpiece is an absorbing, complex and vibrant portrait of the female mind that refuses to be placed into any one box.
June 6, 2019
A haunting, self-reflective dream that looks at the pressures and expectations women place on themselves and particularly on each other.
June 5, 2019
While the transition from stage to screen isn't seamless... all of the emotional power and thoughtful provocation remains importantly intact.

An Imaginative, Deeply-Felt Examination of Grief
May 31, 2019
Mouthpiece certainly has something to say about what feminism represents today andwhat it means to be a woman.
May 30, 2019
Ultimately, the filmmakers' intention isn't to throw us off but to invite us in, to encourage us to wonder: Is it really so strange for one woman to have two reactions to life?
May 30, 2019
A bold, unconventional and surreal character study that's too heavy on the metaphors and flashbacks while low on warmth and wit. Its style often gets in the way of its substance.
September 26, 2018
A film that brandishes the messiness of self-doubt and self-contradiction, but uses that morass of emotions to unearth something very pertinent about the lives women live, and the lives they leave behind.
September 15, 2018
At once a piece of rage and anger, fear and bereavement, love and affection, that is not only one of the best play-to-film adaptations I've seen, but a cinematic punch to the gut and simultaneous grip on the heart.
September 7, 2018
In revealing Cassandra's interior life, Rozema lays bare the modern female condition in an epic battle that is by turns lacerating, soothing and heartbreaking.
September 7, 2018
Rozema's version of the award-winning stage play does more than just open the work up; it fills in key bits of information, shows us Cassandra out and about in Toronto and gives everything an affecting emotional resonance.
September 7, 2018
A moving, warm film that neither pulls its punches nor revels in misanthropy, MOUTHPIECE is an exceptional work, one that feels very much a perfect vehicle for the best of Rozema's craft and proclivities.
September 7, 2018
Rozema wields style and restraint, preserving the play's conceptual wit as Cassandra takes calls, shops for the funeral, and battles with herself while composing an honest and loving eulogy for her mother.
