Critic Reviews for My Name Is Emily

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

Evanna Lynch shines in this whimsical road trip film that has a compelling backstory.

February 17, 2017 | Full Review…

My Name Is Emily is in many respects an average and in several respects a kind of clichéd and frayed coming-of-age movie.

February 17, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Might just charm you into submission.

February 16, 2017 | Full Review…

"My Name is Emily" believes firmly and vigorously in life's hidden joys and our ability to rearrange our thinking to accept it, but its own preciousness proves too steep an obstacle.

Top Critic

My Name Is Emily gets lighter as it goes along, releasing tension and pretension for a pleasant, routine ride.

February 14, 2017 | Full Review…

My Name is Emily is touching in its depiction of the irrepressible bonds of family and funny in its relating of being a socially awkward, weird teenager. It mourns loss but ultimately celebrates life.
