It'd be easy to thread this story through with condescension, but instead, it's modest and compassionate, a midlife awakening for a woman long out of touch with her own needs.

An engagingly offbeat comedy that respects its characters too much to push too hard for easy laughs, even when those characters risk making complete fools of themselves.
March 14, 2012
I'm still reeling at how high a level of difficulty this film worked at, with its bold tonal shifts, meshing of truly dark material and spastic physical comedy.

Stay tuned, however, for more from up-and-comer Pickering. The movie firmly puts him on the map.

March 14, 2012
Modest road-film comedy goes to extremes to liberate its middle-aged heroine from an ultra-conservative household.
March 13, 2012
Couldn't be more clumsily obvious in its narrative setup or more flavorless in its lo-fi Americana tone.

March 13, 2012
Natural Selection mixes elements of Transamerica and the recent Higher Ground to tell the story of how a God-fearing fortysomething woman found the greatest love of all.
March 11, 2012
Natural Selection works because what it documents is less a transformation and more a return to a former, more natural state for its troubled protagonist.

Natural Selection is all about the conflict between our animalistic human urges and our devotion to religious beliefs, and [Director Robbie] Pickering succeeds in telling a truly odd tale with pitch-perfect tonal precision.

A really beautiful performance by Harris. That's a revelation to some people but I never doubted she had it in her. Why wouldn't a successful comedian be an all around engaging thespian?
